Sérgio's first PhD paper published in Current Biology!
Updated: Jul 28, 2022
So proud of Sérgio's first PhD paper on the evolution of mandibular innervation after tooth regression in placental mammals just published in Current Biology (https://doi.org/10.1016/j.cub.2018.12.023). This paper is the result of countless hours of work by Sergio to segment the numerous micro-CT scans of museum specimens included in this study. Huge congrats!
