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.
Dr. Sophie Pezet and Dr. Benjamin Vidal discuss methodology, applications and new possibilities enabled by functional ultrasound (fUS) imaging, with a focus on chronic pain and neuropharmacology research.
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.
