During his time in my lab Adam has received a variety of awards and honors, including a BGSU academic partial scholarship, a Biological Sciences Assistantship, The International Fraternity of Phi Gamma Delta's Foundation Scholarship, Phi Gamma Delta Chairperson of the Year, and Phi Gamma Delta's Highest New Member G.P.A. Honorarium. Adam has also been inducted into to the Beta Tau Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa. He was also selected to participate in the course "Tropical Neuroethology" at the Institute of Neurobiology, University of Puerto Rico. For his master's thesis he used suppression subtractive hybridization to identify gene products that are up- or down-regulated in crayfish nervous tissue following sub-chronic (1 week) serotonin (5HT) treatment. He has received an NIH predoctoral fellowship and completed his PhD in Neuroscience at Northwestern University, Chicago. He is now a postdoctoral research associate at the Salk Insitute for Biological Studies in San Diego

As an honors student in my lab she explored the patterns of hierarchy formation in groups of individuals and the importance of chronic treatment with serotonin for rank and social structure. For her master's thesis she explored the effects of chronic serotonin on agonistic behavior during hierarchy formation. She received her PhD in Neuroscience from Northwestern University, Chicago, and is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology at the Oregon Health Sciences Center.
