Date: Wednesday, June 29th - 11:00AM EDT (UTC -4)
In this live webinar experts will discuss turnkey solutions, referred to as Bussey-Saksida Systems, in terms of the animal environment, various behavioral Tasks, data analysis, methodology and prescribed best practices. In addition, information on integrating the behavioral Tasks with video tracking, optogenetics and electrophysiology will be discussed.
Unique to this online event, it is our audience that will drive the content to be presented during the webinar. During registration, you will be asked to post questions related to your individual research projects either as it relates to the operant systems currently used in the lab or questions you have about deploying such technologies. Our speakers will prepare responses and present information to address the specific questions and challenges brought forward during the registration process.
