Retirement Peter Room

10 October 2016

Due to his upcoming retirement, dr. Peter Room will leave our department. Peter has been with the Section Anatomy for many years, and has been a wonderful colleague who will be dearly missed. Most of you may not know that around the time the movie “Back to the future” played in the cinemas, and half of the department was still waiting to join this world, Peter established neuroanatomical connections some of us are still working on today, e.g.:

Room P, Russchen FT, Groenewegen HJ, Lohman AH. Efferent connections of the prelimbic (area 32) and the infralimbic (area 25) cortices: an anterograde tracing study in the cat. J Comp Neurol. 1985, 242:40-55.

Room P, Groenewegen HJ (1986) Connection of the parahippocampal cortex. I. Cortical afferents. J Comp Neurol. 1986, 251:415–450

Groenewegen HJ, Room P, Witter MP, Lohman AH. Cortical afferents of the nucleus accumbens in the cat, studied with anterograde and retrograde transport techniques. Neuroscience. 1982, 7:977-96.

Peter will be delighted to discuss these papers (or more earthly matters) with you on his goodbye reception on Wednesday Oct. 26 (4pm, room 3219-00.24).

You are all welcome!
