Annual UNC Neuroscience Retreat is finally back after a long interruption by COVID. We stayed one night at the Haw River State Park and enjoyed trail walking (with lots of snake encounters!), camp fire (with lots of beers!) and scientific talks! Daichi and Drew presented their posters.

Toshi thoroughly enjoyed meeting with old and new mushroom body colleagues and his first visit to Göttingen. Many thanks to the organizers: André, Illona & Yoshi!
We participated the UNC Science Expo for the first time with support of our NSF grant! Despite the unpredictable weather, we had a continuous flow of kids after kids who were eager to experience our human v.s. fly competition of odor discrimination and inspect some mutant flies. Our conclusion is kids (and some very competitive parents) are just as good as flies at sniffing out subtle differences of smells. It was exhausting, but we'll definitely come back next year!
