Passive Avoidance Response in Rats: Effects of Handling and Novel Object Recognition

News, Scientific Articles|

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.

Functional Ultrasound: Pushing the Boundaries of Neuroimaging

News, Scientific Articles|

Although ultrasound has been used clinically for decades, advances in its temporal and spatial resolution have opened the door for its use in neuroscience research. In this blog post, we review a very recent and outstanding example of functional ultrasound neuroimaging published in Nature Methods in 2022 (featured image © 2022 Renaudin et al., licensed under CC BY 4.0).
