Dr. Indra Bishnoi 
Western University 

 

The effects of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) on conditioned disgust:
Expanding the rodent model of lithium chloride (LiCl)-induced anticipatory nausea.

 

Dr. Indra Bishnoi recently completed her PhD at Western University in London, Canada, with Dr. Martin Kavaliers and Dr. Klaus-Peter Ossenkopp. Her doctoral project aimed to expand a promising behavioural paradigm for the study of anticipatory nausea in a rodent model. She also uncovered the boundaries of when we can attenuate this form of learning and memory with immune activation. During her PhD, she gained extensive experience in designing batteries of behavioural assays, streamlining analyses, and communicating complex ideas simply. She is a proud mentor of several successful undergraduate and graduate students. Indra’s love for science and mentoring drives her current roles as an instructor of cognitive science and cognitive neuroscience at Western University. As a youth green leader in London, Indra also actively contributes to climate action as a member of her institutional president’s advisory committee on environment and sustainability.

CALL FOR SPEAKERS FOR THE
IBNS (is) STAYING CONNECTED GLOBAL SEMINAR SERIES


The International Behavioral Neuroscience Society is proud to announce the next installment of our virtual, global seminar series for early career researchers, “IBNS (is) Staying Connected.”

The next installment is scheduled for Thursday, February 29, 2024

Apply Today!


We will feature one speaker who is either a late-stage PhD student or a postdoctoral researcher.  The speaker will have 30 minutes to present their research, followed by 5 minutes of introspection about their own methods, data, and future directions, and finish off with a 10-15 minute Q&A.  This will provide the selected ECR with a unique opportunity to engage with the IBNS membership. If you’re interested in being a speaker, please submit a 200-word abstract of your research and a 150-word diversity statement January 25, 2024 by 11:59pm ET . Complete your application here or by clicking the button below.

Your abstract should clearly articulate your research question and approach, the interpretation of your findings and their implications, the innovativeness and impact of these findings, and should incorporate behavior.  

For the diversity statement, you should describe ways in which you have made efforts or plan to make future efforts to promote diversity and inclusion, with regards to culture, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, national origin, physical or mental difference, politics, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, and/or subculture, as described in the IBNS Diversity Statement.  A statement evaluated as Outstanding would include specific examples (e.g. partnering organizations, collaborators, and/or applicant led-initiatives/programs) of things that have been done or being planned, as well as a clear explanation how these examples promote diversity and inclusion within the field of behavioral neuroscience.   Your diversity statement will remain private among the few members reviewing the applications. Nothing in the diversity statement will be made public.
