Join Dr. Berry 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.
Experts discuss an innovative and scalable home cage monitoring solution called Digital Ventilated Cage (DVC), showing how it can be used to study neurodegenerative diseases and monitor biorhythmicity of small rodents.
Dr. Sophie Pezet and Dr. Benjamin Vidal will discuss methodology, applications and new possibilities enabled by functional ultrasound (fUS) imaging, with a focus on chronic pain and neuropharmacology research.
In this webinar, Dr. Angel Moreno will discuss how optogenetics can be used to modulate the cardiac autonomic system, with a special emphasis on experimental preparation, troubleshooting and data analysis and interpretation.
Optogenetic gene therapy holds great promise for healing blindness. Hulliger et. al. have developed a new promoter that effectively targets human ON bipolar cells. This is an important step towards clinical applications of optogenetic gene therapy for restoring vision.
Lais Berro, PhD presents recent research demonstrating the anxiolytic, sedative and abuse-related effects of benzodiazepine drugs, and how they correlate with telemetry-based EEG recordings in a translational non-human primate model.
Julio Ayala, PhD and Matthew Robinson, PhD share their research focusing on feeding behavior in mice and the effects of stress and exercise on metabolism. They will discuss neuronal activity and high-fat diets as well as mitochondrial remodeling and exercise training in mouse models of obesity.
Experts outline techniques and analysis methods for MRE, and both discuss and demonstrate implementation of MRE in a broad range of preclinical research applications in healthy animals and models of disease.
