A Breath of Not-So-Fresh Air: the Combined Effects of Air and Noise Pollution
While air and noise pollution have been well documented independently, their combined effects are insufficiently discussed, until recently. In this blog post, we discuss a recent publication from Kuntic et al. on the combined and individual effects of these pollutants in mice.
Towards Automated Spikesorting using Artificial Intelligence on a Cloud-Based Platform
In this webinar, Dr. Fan Wu and Lidor Spivak discuss the use of artificial intelligence to automate electrophysiological data analysis, including a new cloud-based software platform.
Are They Born This Way? Beat Synchronization in Rats in Response to Lady Gaga, Mozart, and More
Recently, Ito et al. sought to understand beat synchronization in rats and how it compares to humans, which has not been reported to date. In this blog post, we review their findings and how they contribute to our understanding of cross-species beat synchronization.
Industry Insights with Trent Lund on the ANY-maze Operant Interface
This episode of Share Science features Trent Lund from Stoelting Co., who shares some of Stoelting's latest developments such as the deceptively simple and surprisingly powerful ANY-maze, a behavioral tracking software!
Passive Avoidance Response in Rats: Effects of Handling and Novel Object Recognition
Storing aversive memories is important to survival, but learned avoidance responses decrease over time without reinforcement. Since little is known about the mechanisms behind this process, Bengoetxea de Tena et al. evaluated how naive rats respond to a learning and memory task under fear conditions in a recently published study, which we review in this blog post.
