Brian’s Video Earns Second Place in Contest

Our soon-to-be son-in-law, Brian, earned a second place in a national contest for one of his videos. I asked him to describe what happened:

Last Fall, I created a video about “mental time-travel” in animals to submit in the Association of American Medical Colleges’s nationwide Basic Research Video Contest. Dr. David Redish at the University of Minnesota believes that rats have the ability to regret past decisions, and his findings could change the way mental illness is treated in humans. The video came in second place!

Congratulations, Brian!! We’re proud of you.
