Brian V. Entler of Commack, a first-year medical student at Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine, was co-author of a paper published in the August 2017 edition of Frontiers in Systems Neuroscience, a primary research journal in neurophysiology. The paper, entitled "The Effects of Fat Body Tyramine Level on Gustatory Responsiveness of Honeybees (Apis mellifera) Differ between Behavioral Castes," examined the effects of the biogenic amine tyramine and its receptors in shaping social behavior. Although humans do not express this biogenic amine, modeling its projection neurons and its role on gustatory response may have implications for human neurology.
