Dr. Julie Finnell and Dr. Natalie Tronson make news with recent article

Dr. Julie Finnell, Postdoctoral Fellow in the Ferrario Lab, recently collaborated with Dr. Natalie Tronson, Associate Professor of Psychology, on a publication where sex differences were assessed in cytokine expression and cytokine networks in the hippocampus and plasma at various time points after a discrete immune stimulation. Findings from their study show that sex differences in neuroimmune responses encompass the intensity and time course of cytokine responses as well as overall cytokine network architecture. These differences are poised to influence both short and long-term consequences associated with neuroimmune activation in males and females.
