CNC Student Jonathan Perelmuter wins Otto Kinne Award
The Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology held their annual meeting in New Orleans last month. BCN student Jonathan Perelmuter (Brooklyn College) won the Otto Kinne Award for Best Student Presentation in the Division of Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology for his poster presentation “Dopaminergic Modulation of Hearing in the Plainfin Midshipman Fish.” This work constitutes the first physiological investigation of the effects of dopamine on auditory processing in the inner ear in a non-mammalian vertebrate.
Jonathan’s poster was included among 72 student talks and posters entered into the Best Student Presentation competition. The judges expressed their appreciation for Jonathan’s presentation in their award letter, saying his presentation “won the judges’ hearts with the exciting research question, engaging and well organized poster, as well as the excellent presentation skills and the enthusiasm you showed for your research.”
Jonathan’s research has also recently been published in the Journal of Comparative Neurology, an article titled “Connectivity and ultrastructure of dopaminergic innervation of the inner ear and auditory efferent system of a vocal fish”
