Congratulations, Stephanie for successfully defending her Ph. D. thesis! Her thesis provided novel insight into functional consequences of tau pathology and partial cell loss in the lateral entorhinal cortex on long-range circuit activity underlying associative learning in rats. Her work formed a foundation in our research program directed at examining pathophysiology in prodromal stages of Alzheimer;s disease. We thank Dr. Sylvain Williams at McGill University for his thorough appraisal of Stephanie's thesis and insightful discussion during the defense.
