Professor Barney Schlinger elected President-Elect for the Society of Behavioral Neuroendocrinology

SBN'S INCOMING PRESIDENT-ELECT: BARNEY A. SCHLINGER
Barney A. Schlinger, Ph.D. obtained a B.S. at Tufts U. in Biology (1977) and a M.S. (1983) and Ph.D (1988) at Boston.U. His dissertation research with Gloria Callard investigated brain steroid-metabolism and behavior in birds. His post-doctoral work in Psychology at UCLA with Art Arnold explored the neurobiology and endocrinology of birdsong. He was appointed as Assist Professor (1993) in what is now the Department of Integrative Biology and Physiology (IBP) at UCLA and became Full Professor in 2002. In 2009 he was selected to Chair the IBP Department, a position he currently still holds. He is broadly interested in the powerful ways in which steroid hormones influence the structure and function of the brain to control complex vertebrate behavior. He challenges dogma that the steroids that control brain and behavior are derived solely from the periphery. In songbirds, his lab finds that steroids are synthesized de novo in brain with actions independent of peripheral hormones. Much of his work has focused on the estrogen synthetic enzyme aromatase. By combining biochemical, anatomical, electrophysiological, molecular and behavioral approaches, his lab has convincingly demonstrated that estrogens are brain constitutive neuromodulators influencing avian auditory processing. His lab also strives to address problems that link laboratory study with general questions in ecology, evolutionary biology and ethology. He has studied a diversity of wild species, including jays and wild sparrows. He has developed a model system for understanding neuromuscular and hormonal control of a complex motor behavior, the courtship of wild male golden-collared manakins of Panamanian rainforests. This line of work has developed into a significant story that links behavioral neuroendocrinology with diverse areas of anatomy, physiology and evolutionary theory. Over the years, he has received a number of honors including being a recipient of the Frank Beach Award from SBN (1993); an Alexander von Humboldt Research Award and he is a Research Associate of the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute. He has considerable administrative experience at UCLA. As a member of SBN from near the beginning he has had many roles including Secretary, 2007-2009; Chair, Nominating Committee, 2015; Chair, Awards Committee, 2009-2011; Chair, Organizing Committee for the 2007 Annual Meeting. He was elected to the Advisory Board, 2003-2007; was a member of the Nominating Committee, 2000; Training Grant Committee, 2001; Frank Beach Award Committee, 2002-2004; Program Committee, 2003-2005; he organized workshops for the annual meetings in 2004 & 2005, an outgrowth of which was the current Public Education Committee. He is eager to help SBN and its members prosper and meet the challenges we face in our pursuit of scientific discovery and excellence.

UCLA Professor Emerita Judith L. Smith has been selected to receive the 2016 2017 Carole E. Goldberg Emeriti Service Award

UCLA Professor Emerita Judith L. Smith has been selected to receive the 2016 – 2017 Carole E. Goldberg Emeriti Service Award. The award will be presented at the UCLA Emeriti Association annual dinner.
Judith L. Smith, retired as Senior Dean and Convener of the College Cabinet of Deans (Letters and Science) in 2012. In 2014, she was asked and recalled to become Executive Director of the (still-“virtual”) UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music and the School’s Interim Dean. This was more than a full-time job, but she undertook it, did a superlative job in what might have otherwise seemed an impossible situation, tasked with fusing three departments into a cohesive school. Subsequent to her recall, Judi has now formally assumed the position of the founding Dean of this School lending her considerable dynamism, charisma and collegiality to the school and enhancing its visibility and presence on campus.
Please join me in wishing Dean Smith a well-deserved congratulations for outstanding service to UCLA since retirement and for serving as a powerful example of intellectual and professional achievement.

Professor Alan Garfinkel Awarded the Newton Abraham Visiting Professorship at Oxford for 2019-2020

Professor Alan Garfinkel Awarded the Newton Abraham Visiting Professorship at Oxford for 2019-2020

The Newton Abraham Visiting Professorship in association with Lincoln College
The Newton Abraham Visiting Professorship is an exciting opportunity for a highly distinguished
researcher working in the medical, biological or chemical sciences or a related interdisciplinary
area to spend up to 12 months in Oxford. In addition to following a programme of collaborative
research, the Professor’s role involves stimulating interest in and research within her or his field,
and engagement with the wider research community at Oxford and beyond, including delivery of
the prestigious Newton Abraham Lecture. The Professor receives a salary of £65,967 per
annum (at current rates) plus personal travel expenses, and will be provided with family
accommodation, free of rent and local taxes. The Visiting Professor will be a Professorial Fellow
of Lincoln College, Oxford.

A Brief History of the Professorship

The noted biochemist Sir Edward Penley Abraham worked in
the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology at Oxford, where, with Ernest Chain and Howard Florey, he investigated the therapeutic potential of penicillin and played an important role in purifying it and decoding its chemical structure. E.P. Abraham subsequently worked with Guy Newton in the
discovery of the antibiotic cephalosporin. The patent income from the antibiotic enabled the establishment of several charitable trusts for the support of biomedical research,including the E.P. Abraham Research Fund. The Newton Abraham Visiting Professorship was established in 1980, with a donation from the E.P. Abraham Research Fund.

Professor David Glanzman's eLife Research is Featured in Scientific American - Memories May Not Live in Neurons' Synapses

The finding could mean recollections are more enduring than expected and disrupt plans for PTSD treatments

As intangible as they may seem, memories have a firm biological basis. According to textbook neuroscience, they form when neighboring brain cells send chemical communications across the synapses, or junctions, that connect them. Each time a memory is recalled, the connection is reactivated and strengthened. The idea that synapses store memories has dominated neuroscience for more than a century, but a new study by scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles, may fundamentally upend it: instead memories may reside inside brain cells. If supported, the work could have major implications for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a condition marked by painfully vivid and intrusive memories.

FORMER POST-DOC OF PROFESSOR BARNEY SCHLINGER, DR. LUKE REMAGE-HEALEY WINS FRANK A. BEACH AWARD

Society for Behavioral Neuroendocrinology (SBN) is proud to announce that the recipient of the 2012 Frank A. Beach Award is Dr. Luke Remage-Healey, assistant professor at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. The award is made to a new investigator, normally within eight years post-PhD (or MD) who shows exceptional promise for making significant contributions to the field of Behavioral Neuroendocrinology. Dr. Remage-Healey will be honored at the Behavioral Neuroendocrinology Social at the Society for Neuroscience meeting in New Orleans, and he will present his lecture at SBN's annual meeting in Atlanta in June 2013. Dr. Remage-Healey worked in the laboratory of Michael Romero at Tufts as an undergraduate, received his PhD working in the lab of Andy Bass at Cornell, and then did a postdoc with Barney Schlinger at UCLA. Dr. Remage-Healey's website describes his work as follows:

"Our lab is focused on the study of behavioral physiology, specifically the non-traditional regulation of brain function and behavior by steroid hormones. Steroids are produced within discrete neural circuits ('neurosteroids') and can therefore influence behavior via local and acute actions within those circuits. We study these phenomena in songbirds using a variety of technical approaches including in vivo microdialysis, electrophysiology, immunocytochemistry, and neuropharmacology. Songbirds offer a unique model system in which brain steroid production is widespread and especially pronounced, and in which the development and expression of a suite of social behaviors is accessible in the laboratory and natural environments."

Congratulations to Dr. Remage-Healey!
