Brain Institute Hosts Neuroscientist And Author for Wilkes Honors College Richard Gordon
Honors College students and faculty recently enjoyed a presentation by neuroscientist and author Larry Young from Emory University. The Brain Institute hosted this special event and provided signed copies of Young’s book The Chemistry Between Us to the first 30 undergraduate attendees. The book and Young’s talk relate to research on the brain mechanisms that support animal and human social interactions and their relevance to brain-based treatments for autism.
Professor Publishes Study in Psychology Journal Richard Gordon
Wilkes Honors College Professor of Psychology Kevin Lanning, Ph.D. authored a study that examines the relationship between social psychology and personality. The project offers new methods for examining the structure of scholarly communities and a set of initial results for understanding the structure of social and personality psychologies. The results were published in the journal Collabra: Psychology.
Wilkes Honors College Students Set Sail During HBOI Semester By The Sea Richard Gordon

The 2017 Semester By The Sea (SBTS) students spent last week aboard the R/V Bellows in the Gulf of Mexico. The research cruise is part of the Ocean Exploration for Undergraduates course taught by Drs. Dennis Hanisak, Jim Masterson and Ned Smith, which provides hands-on, at-sea, multi-disciplinary opportunities for undergraduates. Students develop team projects on the cruise, which lead to the students collecting appropriate data and producing a scientific poster. Through these activities, students learn a number of research methodologies in a team setting and take a small project from inception at-sea through completion and dissemination.

The students are working at-sea with Hanisak, Masterson, and Biologist Lisa Jackson. Projects currently under development are heavily focused on analysis of different components of the benthic community (fish, crustaceans, mollusks and echinoderms) along the cruise track from Tampa Bay estuary to the continental shelf. Projects will be presented in the SBTS poster session on April 17.

This will be SBTS's last cruise on the RV Bellows, which has worked along Florida's estuaries and coastlines as a floating laboratory for more than 40 years. It will be replaced later this year by the 78-foot RV Hogarth, which is currently being built in Tarpon Springs.


Florida Atlantic University’s John D. MacArthur Campus in Jupiter presently enrolls more than 1,500 students and offers a broad range of upper-division and graduate courses. The campus houses the Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College and the nation’s largest Lifelong Learning Society. Both the FAU Brain Institute and the FAU Center for Molecular Biology and Biotechnology call the MacArthur campus home, providing cutting edge research infrastructure and educational programs that link to other FAU campuses. The Jupiter Life Science Initiative serves to unite scientists and students in campus research and training activities, and helps sustain FAU’s close affiliations with Scripps Florida and the Max Planck Florida Institute, which are also located on the campus.
