anybody of East Asian descent whether or not they were actually Japanese American. Maryanna (Nitz) Ligocka abt 1855 Poland managed by Shawn Ligocki last edited … 4 years ago. , In 1998, Poe was recruited to Washington State University, joining the faculty as an Assistant Professor of Veterinary and Comparative Anatomy and an Assistant Professor of Pharmacology and Physiology. Gina R. Poe is an American neuroscientist specializing in the study of sleep and its effect on memory and learning. Where are Ronald Ebens and Michael Nitz? Ronald Ebens. Frank George Nitz 04 Sep 1925 Calumet City, Cook, Illinois, United States - 17 Jan 1975 managed by Freida Burroughs last edited 29 Jul 2019. , Poe began working on her PhD in neuroscience at UCLA under the guidance of Ronald Harper. Source(s): https://shrink.im/a9Iz8. Different Simultaneous Sleep States in the Hippocampus and Neocortex. Born in 1920, Kaufman served as a navigator for the Army Air Force during World War II. Born in Benton Harbor, Michigan, Nitz went to Southwestern Michigan College.  Poe also co-directs the Neuroscience Scholars Program through the Society for Neuroscience; admission to the program is restricted to underrepresented students.  Her thesis concerned the neural mechanisms underlying sleep state in cats. ") and again in March 1979. , Poe completed her graduate training in 1995. In 1977, when a 17-year-old African-American male, Greg Mathis, was arrested on a concealed-weapons charge, Kaufman handed a sentence of probation, provided that Mathis enrolled and passed a GED course in six months.  Mathis turned away from gang behavior, and in 1994, he went on to become the youngest judge elected to the 36th District Court in Detroit, eventually becoming a popular television personality as Judge Mathis.

Poe is a member of the Society for Neuroscience Professional Development Committee, which aims to "further the professional development of neuroscientists" with an emphasis on diversity. Ebens and Nitz were arrested by two off-duty police officers who witnessed the assault.  She is also the co-faculty director of the Maximizing Access to Research Careers (MARC) Program. After graduating in 1987, Poe spent two years at the Department of Veterans Affairs studying the brain waves of pilots during high-G maneuvers. Kaufman jailed an entire town board for failing to approve a sewer line in December 1978 (stating, when asked how long the town board would remain in jail, "Well, what is their life expectancy? Gina R. Poe is an American neuroscientist specializing in the study of sleep and its effect on memory and learning. , In court, a plea-bargain brought the charges against Ebens and Nitz down from second-degree murder to manslaughter. , Kaufman is the judge who sentenced former Chrysler plant superintendent Ronald Ebens and his stepson Michael Nitz on March 16, 1983 to three years' probation and $3,780 in fines and court costs after they were convicted of manslaughter for the killing of Vincent Chin. Neither served any jail time as punishment (though Ebens did after his arrest, for the rest of the weekend). Judge Kaufman issued a number of notable decisions jailing other individuals for committing less heinous offenses. , Poe is the principal investigator of the Poe Lab, and her research program has been focused on exploring the mechanisms by which the neural mechanisms of sleep support learning and memory. , After the war, Kaufman graduated from Wayne State University Law School in 1948, and joined his father's firm before winning the election for Common Pleas Court Judge in 1959, and Wayne County Third Circuit Court of Michigan in 1964 where he served for 30 years. Antidepressant suppression of non-REM sleep spindles and REM sleep impairs hippocampus-dependent learning while augmenting striatum-dependent learning.  Poe then examined the biological underpinnings of the observed theta peaks and troughs during REM sleep.
