Research year in Medical School
Hi! I was wondering what people thought about taking a research year to help with applying to neuro. The field seems to value heavily value research and there are lots of MD/PhDs in the field. I came into medical school straight from undegrad. During undergrad, I was in a heavily basic science lab, ending up switching projects, and did not end up publishing anything. I'm worried that the fact neuro research seems to take so long to get good data + I have no leverage from undergrad will... Research year in Medical School

Non-viral technique provides a potential new platform for treating a variety of genetic diseases.
ConclusionEnvironmental enrichment reduced remifentanil intake, suggesting that social and environmental novelty may protect against opioid abuse.
ConclusionsDespite oxytocin ’s previously proposed role in enhanced emotional processing, no proof was found that this would lead to reduced performance on a concurrent cognitive task. The routes by which oxytocin exerts its effects on cognitive and social-emotional processes remain to be fully elucidated.
ConclusionsThese findings suggest that V1a receptor regulates THC-induced catalepsy-like immobilization.
Conclusions(RS)-Amisulpride generalized to some, but not all benzamide derivatives, and it failed to generalize to any other antipsychotic, antidepressant, or antianxiety drugs tested. Interestingly, the (R)-isomer shared very strong stimulus properties with (RS)-amisulpride. This finding was in contrast to findings from Donahue et al. (Eur J Pharmacol 734:15 –22,2014), which found that the (R)-isomer did not share very strong stimulus properties when the (S)-isomer was the training drug.
ConclusionThese data demonstrated that menthol specifically sustained and reinstated nicotine-seeking behavior, and this effect was independent of TRPM8 activity. These findings suggest that menthol in most tobacco products, even not menthol labeled, may contribute to the perseverance of and relapse to tobacco-seeking behavior.
