Pinned toot

I am enjoying reading lots of different introductions over the last days so I will hop on the train as well and introduce myself! 👋

I am a PhD student at the for motivation, action, and desire lab working with @nbkroemer 🧠

I am broadly interested in and in my PhD I am incorporating a metabolic perspective to understand how the influences neural communication, motivation and effort. 🏋️‍♂️

Many psychiatric disorders come along with both motivational and metabolic alterations so the gut-brain perspective might help us to better understand and treat disorders like 🎯

Mostly here for all the diverse science 💡🤩

And following the #TwitterMigration Now in the right server 😉 Here comes my intro! #neuroscience #neurodon #decisionneuroscience 
Hello everyone! I’m a 4th year PhD candidate focused on decision neuroscience, noninvasive brain stimulation #nibs and the #gutbrainaxis. My research aims at clarifying the neural underpinnings of #risktakingbehavior Check out my work AlineDantas.net and connect!

Hi everyone, just got here from Twitter. I head the Biopsychology Lab at the Psychology Department at University of Cologne.

We use computational and cognitive neuroscience approaches to better understand the mechanisms underlying decision-making and learning.

More specific issues we study include mechanisms underlying problem gambling, and everything dopamine.

So how does this work, I just click "toot"?

Can gastrointestinal hormones modulate our reward responses? @cecivez and I ventured into the available data and literature to find that
🎯 ghrelin enhances reward responses within the motivational circuit! w/ @nbkroemer

Overdue #introduction 👋 
I am a #neuroscientist currently finishing an #NSF postdoc fellowship at #Caltech - starting as an Assistant Professor at #UniversityofMelbourne in 2023.
My work uses #experimental & #computational approaches with #fMRI to study the neural basis of decision making in humans. I focus on how the brain processes information related to #threat & #safety. I examine the development of these systems from #adolescence to #adulthood.
Glad to join the #neuroscience contingent!

Hi tweeps, the U-shape is ubiquitous in psychology. However, it can easily be (mis)used to explain (away) mixed findings too. What is according to you the most robust evidence for (inverted) U-shaped effects in psychology (ideally causal, manipulated within-person)? Pls RT!

I will be giving a virtual talk at the Montreal AI and Neuroscience conference on Dec 13th. Check it out here: main2022.org/

Hi! #introduction:

I'm a former #neuroscience postdoc who found herself too much of a generalist to stick to a specific research topic. I need the bigger picture! Still, I'll be forever fascinated by the 🧠 #brain, #connectomics, #neuroimaging, #neurobiology, #evolution, #cognition 🤩

I am now R&D manager at SAIA-Agrobotics.com, a #startup combining #greenhouse #horticulture, #ai and #robotics to fundamentally change greenhouse #automation 🌱🤖.

Hi Mastodon 🙋🏼‍♀️ I guess it‘s time for an introduction!
I’m Stina and currently working on my in at Gothenburg University in Sweden. My focus: gut-brain communication in eating behavior and emotionality, specifically investigating the influence of and potential .
Besides, I have been communicating science on social media since 6 years now and became a docent in about a year ago.
Looking forward to connecting with you!

#Introduction time! #NeuroscienceMigration

🎓 I'm a PhD candidate in #neuroscience at #uOttawa searching for a one-sentence explanation of what #serotonin does in the 🧠.

💻 I take a bottom-up #computational and systems neuroscience approach, creating new mathematical and software tools to link (electro)physiology and function.

Follow for papers and #python, maybe some #urbanism on the side.

I think I’m due for an ! I’m an MD/PhD student at , doing my PhD in with Jean-Claude Béïque and Richard Naud. My work explores how uncertainty in reward feedback is processed in cortex, mainly in the context of .

To do this, I use tasks in mice along with simultaneous in vivo two-photon calcium imaging. I also model and using .

Some of my other interests include patch clamp , post remodeling, , and .

Follow if you want to join me in finding and sharing interesting papers and ideas!

Hi Mastodon 👋 Jumping on the #introduction train so here is a little about me:

🏛️ PhD candidate in my 2nd year at The University of Sydney

📚 researching how to use #socialmedia for #healthcommunication to #youngpeople specifically during #publicheath #emergencies like #COVID19

🧐 fascinated by all things #science #scicomm #media #popculture

Keen to connect with other #academics doing #digitalhealth #research 📱🤝
@academicchatter @academicsunite @phdstudents

🎉New preprint together with Uta Sailer, Federica Riva, Jana Lieberz, Dan Campbell-Meiklejohn and Dirk Scheele

... demonstrating that varying #ghrelin concentrations did *not* affect #SocialReward processing 🧠🗣️
