Prof. Catherine Dulac is a world-renowned scientist and made a number of seminal discoveries underlying the neurobiology of social behavior. Recently, she identified how the mouse brain regulates crucial mating and parenting behavior. On June 8th, she will give the Konrad Akert Lecture and talk about her research using molecular, genetic and optical techniques to explore the molecular and neuronal basis of innate social behavior.
