NeuroTalk S2E1: Yun Zhang


Welcome to the new year of school, and a new year of NeuroTalk! In the first episode of our second season, our guest is Yun Zhang, an associate professor of biology at Harvard University. We speak with professor Zhang about growing up in science, and studying learning and behavior in C.elegans!

Note to listeners: we had some connectivity issues while conducting the interview, so the audio quality is not as good in some places.
