The Neurobiology of Aging group headed by Drs. Michael Chumley (Biology) and Gary Boehm (Psychology), has just published it’s 4th manuscript in 2019 and made three presentations at the Society for Neuroscience Meeting 2019.
Here is their 2019 publication list:

Graduate students in the group are denoted by *; undergraduate students in the group are denoted by **. Other TCU faculty contributing authors include Dr. Giri Akkaraju (Biology), Dr. Meredith Curtis (Biology), Dr. Kayla Green (Chemistry), and Dr. Brent Cooper (Psychology)
Several students also attended the Society for Neuroscience 2019, the world’s largest annual scientific meeting, drawing over 30,000 attendees from more than 80 countries. This year, over 14,000 abstracts were submitted. The following three papers were presented:
