Trent Lund, PhD, and Flavia Teixeira Silva, PhD, provide an introduction to the ANY-maze Operant Interface as well as a demonstration of the capabilities of the system to perform behavioral experiments.
The 2022 InsideScientific Research Technology & Innovation Summits focus on specific research and therapeutic areas, reviewing how novel technologies and innovative services are advancing discovery in each particular field.
Dr. Agenor Limon presents research integrating functional metrics with large anatomical, transcriptomic, and proteomic datasets to evaluate the relationship between synaptic E/I ratio and behavioral abnormalities across postmortem intervals and brain banks.
Dr. Jeff Jamison presented on the connection between operant conditioning and studying vision in small animals, and how visual acuity tasks can form the basis for various research models, including toxicology and pharmacological testing.
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.
Dr. Paul Marvar and Benjamin Turley present research pairing behavioral and cardiovascular responses to cued fear learning and demonstrate how fear-based disorders (such as PTSD) can contribute to cardiovascular disease risk.
