I have just returned from a quick trip to Europe. The first half was participating in Journal of Experimental Biology Symposium 2018: Linking brain and behaviour in animal navigation. Spring time in the shadow of Mt Olympus in northern Greece was a great place to meet and discuss the forefront of navigation neuroethology. And then the second half was quick visit to meet up with Alex (Wyethlab MSc student) and Dr. Daniel Jackson at University of Göttingen. Alex is visiting Dan’s lab to learn in situ hybridization methods in the pond snail, Lymnaea. Some good conversations with Dan – hopefully leading to further interesting collaborations in the future!
