Apart from getting the chance to give my first ever conference talk, which was, of course, a learning experience in itself and an important goal in my journey towards a PhD, I learnt a lot about the avian brain and also quite a bit about avian genetics (and genomics). As someone who has only recently started looking a bit closer into gene expression in the brain of chickens in correlation with physiological changes in food-restricted conditions, this has given me a lot of new ideas about how I want to go about my research project, both in terms of some new measurements to include but perhaps mostly in terms of how to interpret and handle my results.

To inform conservation measures for fishes and improve effective fish management, the impacts of key environmental variables such as temperature must be understood. As anthropogenic factors coupled with global climate change have altered water temperatures, research has increasingly focused on understanding the mechanistic links between temperature changes and declines in native fish populations.
