Faculty, student have paper published on BioOne.org
Associate Professor of Biology Robin Forbes-Lorman and Miye Aoki-Kramer ’20 of Seattle, Washington, had a paper published on BioOne.org, a database of research in the biological, ecological and environmental sciences.
Aoki-Kramer was a biology major with minors in educational studies and chemistry. She graduated magna cum laude with honors in biology. As a goal keeper for the Red Hawks women’s soccer team, she was named academic all-conference each of her four years and to the first-team academic all-district by CoSIDA as a sophomore. Aoki-Kramer is now teaching eighth grade science and sixth grade environmental studies in the Seattle Public School District.
The abstract for “Litter sex composition has sex and context-specific effects on juvenile play behavior in Sprague-Dawley rats” reads: “Juvenile social play behavior is one of the most important developmental behaviors for many animals, including humans. Social play facilitates the development of a variety of adult behaviors, including adult sex behavior and aggression. In this study, we redistributed the rat pups into home cages that were either single-sex female, single-sex male, or mixed sex on postnatal day (PN) 13. For this preliminary report, juvenile play behavior was observed in both focal observation and paired encounter paradigms from PN25-PN30. We hypothesized that the sex composition of the litter would have an effect on juvenile play behavior and our preliminary analyses support this hypothesis.”
