Synaptic Plasticity During Environmental Enrichment

Presented by Rachel Jeffrey, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Biology, Southern Connecticut State University

Professor Jeffrey’s research explored how environmental enrichment induces changes in the brain. However, it is important to distinguish between physical and social components of enrichment. The results support differing effects of physical and social enrichment in adolescent animals.

Vaccinated and boosted members and guests are welcome to attend in person.
