Summary: For my internship, I joined the Doctrine Nocturnes group at the UC Davis Mind Institute. Our main focus is to investigate how the brain develops and changes over time. Specifically, my role involves mapping Michael peers, which means labeling specific cell types called microglia in patient brain images. By tracking the behavior of microglia during this process, we can gain insights into the brain's development. This work comes with its own set of challenges, such as finding a place to rent and effectively communicating with our research partners. It also requires knowledge of various tools, such as live larvae and a new microscope. However, it's not just about having access to new tools; it's important to know how to use them effectively. Overcoming these challenges and learning how to utilize the tools has been a valuable part of the experience.
