The study previously published as the first preprint from our lab and the Aso lab is now published in eLife! In this work, we went beyond the simple associative learning and identified a key circuit that underlies second-order conditioning, which is a form of higher-order learning observed in many different vertebrate and invertebrate species. The paper reveals the importance of interconnections between dopaminergic systems for complex learning.

Drew visited the Honors Principles of Human Genetics class, taught by our former Kenan Fellow, Robyn Stanek-Dembisky, at Wakefield High School in Raleigh, NC. This time, he was able to make it in person and gave a talk about the Model Organisms in Biology Research, which was followed by endless questions from 30 enthusiastic students. Thank you, Drew and Robyn, for building such a lasting and fruitful relationship to broaden the science community!
