In this webinar, experts at The Myers Neuro-Behavioral Core Facility at Tel-Aviv University address specific advantages and limitations of today's home cage monitoring (HCM) technology used in behavioral research.
Experts discuss electrical and optical-based techniques capable of stimulating and recording neuronal activity during fMRI, share examples using these tools to study neurovascular coupling, and introduce a method to acquire fMRI data at zero echo time and discuss the advantages over traditional fMRI technique.
Dr. Jackie Limberg discusses the basics of human autonomic research and shares tips & tricks for data collection and analysis during human autonomic testing to improve the accuracy and reliability of your findings.
Experts discuss the synergies and implementation of state-of-the-art hybrid PET/MR technology and the new avenues of exploration it affords in the fields of neuroscience, cancer, and metabolic disease through to dual molecular probe development.
OBESITY SERIES 2020: Lora Heisler, PhD discusses the unique brain circuits that are controllers of body weight, reviews how our genes impact our waistline and explains how obesity medications leverage basic neurobiology to reduce hunger and decrease body weight.
It is well established that nesting materials are an important inclusion for mouse cages. We wanted to determine whether there was a significant difference in mice activity when offered three different material choices and whether there was any correlation between activity in the cage and nest complexity.
A growing body of evidence suggests that Home Cage Monitoring studies are becoming key tools for in vivo animal research for three main reasons: reduction in animal distress thereby increasing welfare, minimization of biases (wanted and unwanted), and increased reproducibility of data.
Chris Rand discusses the updated 200A Olfactometer from Aurora Scientific. He walks through setting up the system before sharing best practices, all while demonstrating the integral functions of the system.
Experts discuss novel cuff electrodes for in vivo peripheral nerve research, including the importance of electrode design, how to select the right cuff, implantation techniques and application results from nerve stimulation and blocking.
Experts discuss new configurable wireless technologies for single unit electrophysiology recording in small and large animals, with a focus on applications, methodology, data outcomes, and the impact these devices will have in research involving untethered, naturally behaving subjects.
