In graduate school, I studied the interactions of glial cells and neurons in the central nervous system. The glial cells I focused on are called oligodendrocytes. Oligodendrocytes make myelin, the fatty insulating protection around axons. I investigated how neurons and oligodendrocytes changed in the olfactory bulb in response to changing sensory activity in adults. You can read more about that in my preprint. I’ve formally left academia (not taking a postdoc), but I still work closely with scientists and am very involved with how science is done and the people who do it.
