Greg Girardi will be pursuing his PhD at UC Davis! REU 2017, MIT (McCloskey Lab and Asada Lab, mentor Hyeonyu Kim)

To better understand the anatomical, morphological, and emergent properties of the mammalian spinal cord, collected samples were stained using immunohistological techniques with confocal and brightfield microscopy for visualization.  This allowed for the presence of specific diverse cell types to be found as well as the ability to quantify both the mean process length and the relative amounts of each cell type over time. Such work will be key in contributing to the optimization and development of a novel neuromuscular system that can exhibit both complex behaviors and a high degree of autonomy.
