Title: Analyses of the neural bases of individual differences in behavioral outcomes caused by social stress
[Message from Hibiki]
I presented about my interdisciplinary research, which is a feature of the Ph.D. Program in Humanics, in the Forum for Graduate School Educational Reform. It was exciting to have discussions with people from other graduate schools.

Title: Intracellular Ca 2+ dynamics in the ALA neuron reflect sleep pressure and regulate sleep in Caenorhabditis elegans
[Message from Mr. Miyazaki]
From programming to creating genetically modified worms, it has been hard work. This project has just begun; we are trying to understand sleep regulatory mechanisms using worms.

I presented a paper that included both neuroscience and image processing engineering. I believe that I could make this achievement because of the Ph.D. Program in Humanics, which is characterized by the fusion of different fields of study. It has been a valuable experience for me. I would like to thank everyone who helped me.
