2019 Rowheath Trust Award and Carl Smith Medal recipient Dr Karl Iremonger presents his lecture "Neural Signatures of Stress".
Stress is something that we all experience. Our brains have dedicated neural circuits which allow us to respond and adapt to stress. Dr Iremonger, from the Department of Physiology, will talk about research from his laboratory at the University of Otago which is shedding new light on how neural stress circuits function in the brain.
The Carl Smith Medal is awarded annually to recognise the outstanding scholarly achievement of researchers in the early stages of their career. The medal is accompanied by a $5,000 grant for personal scholarly development. It is funded by the Rowheath Trust, which was set up by the late Sir Carl Smith who was a prominent Dunedin businessman and member of the University of Otago Council.
The event will be at the Burns 1 Lecture Theatre.
