Rats, mice, students and depression


Last friday Students of Pharmaceutical Sciences and the Pharmaceutical Library held our third academic seminar, this time with Jesper T. Andreasen. As is our custom with the seminar in the spring, the speaker is the recipient of the prestigeous award for teacher of the year. At the School of Pharmacy, that is. Jesper spoke about his work with mice and rats as models for the study of anxiety and depression. A very enlightening talk, I did not know that (some) treatments for alzheimers address the same receptors as nerve agents!
