Join Louise Parr-Brownlie, PhD and Conor Underwood, PhD for a review of implantable optogenetics to replace deep brain stimulation, a surgical procedure overview, and a discussion about the impact of acute optogenetic stimulation for the treatment of Parkinson's disease in a rat model.
Dr. Yasaman Soudagar and Dr. Roshni Christo demonstrate how to use calcium imaging in up to 4 implanted areas of the brain of freely behaving mice to map out neuronal circuits and identify changes that take place under different disease conditions and behavior mechanisms.
Aileen King presents data showing that small alterations to experimental protocol and choice of model can impact on both welfare and data interpretation when studying blood glucose homeostasis in mice.
Join Dudley Lamming, PhD an Associate Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, as he answers questions from a recent webinar that focuses on his research involving how diets can affect metabolic health and longevity.
This episode of Expert Answers features Dr. Gilles E Martin an Associate Professor of Neurobiology at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. He is here to speak about the cellular basis and reward pathways behind binge drinking behavior and alcohol abuse in rodent models.
Join Dr. Barry Setlow as he discusses the behavioral and biological mechanisms of cost-benefit decision making in rodent models, with a focus on how substance use can affect variability and long-term consequences in decision making.
