Social interactions are essential for animals to we may include on your lecture flyer. survive, reproduce, raise their young. Over the years, Catherine Dulac's lab has attempted to decipher the unique characteristics of social recognition: what are the unique cues that trigger distinct social behaviors, what is the nature and identity of social behavior circuits, how is the function of these circuits different in males and females and how are they modulated by the animal physiological status? In this lecture, Dr. Dulac will describe our recent progress in understanding how the brain controls specific social behaviors in
both males and females, and how different parts of the brain participate in the positive and negative controls of specific social interactions. She will also describe how new approaches in in situ single cell transcriptomics have enabled us to uncover specific hypothalamic cell populations involved in distinct social behaviors.
