We have had a great and productive summer thanks to the interns provided by NIDA. Cagla Unal and Marina Han come to us under the auspices of the Research Experiences for High-school and Undergraduate students (REHU; see http://ratgenes.org/summer-2016-genes-and-addictive-behavior-rehu-program/ for more information). Cagla attends the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where she will be a sophomore. Marina is from California and attends the University of Chicago, where she will be a junior. Their project involves studying the role of the neurotransmitter norepinephrine on learning about food-related stimuli.
