Thanks @victoriakcheung for reminding us to take a break and step outside once in a while.

"How cool is this hawk/falcon flying @ucsf mission bay??? What a good reminder to step outside of lab once in a while and just appreciate what’s outside. Also, it’s a nice day 😌"

They won the Nobel Prize for discovering this "ocular dominance" plasticity in 1981.
.
38 years later, UCSF scientists in the Stryker lab have finally caught this phenomenon in action — using 2-photon microscopes to observe brain circuits rewire themselves to adapt to changing sensory input. This work may help us understand how brain circuits form memories and what goes wrong in neurological diseases.

On this Veteran’s Day, we commemorate the courageous veterans and military-affiliated students, staff and faculty at UCSF.

Their extraordinary life experiences give them a unique perspective and we’re #UCSFProud they chose to pursue a health sciences career at UCSF.

Oracle Park was bustling under sunny skies as the annual event wrapped up the 2019 Bay Area Science Festival.
