Enhance your SfN2012 experience in New Orleans with a one day Zebrafish Behavioral Neuroscience and Neurophenotyping Workshop (ZB2N2012)
Dates (pre-SfN): October 11, 2012 (10 am-6 pm) OR October 12, 2012 (10 am-6 pm)
Dates (post-SfN): October 18, 2012 (10 am-6 pm) OR October 19, 2012 (10 am-6 pm)
General Introduction: As more and more labs are establishing zebrafish (Danio rerio) projects, zebrafish are rapidly becoming a popular model organism for neuroscience research, as more and more labs are establishing zebrafish projects. This day-long course consists of a series of lectures covering major neurobehavioral domains and advanced phenotyping techniques for probing normal and pathological behaviors in zebrafish. The lectures will be followed by informal breakout sessions discussing the practical application of zebrafish screens, 2D and 3D behavioral analyses, video-tracking tools, and future new
directions in the field. Workshop participants will also have the opportunity to discuss their own research problems, and obtain expert consultation from workshop organizers.
This workshop will be an excellent opportunity for both PIs and their junior colleagues and students to become familiar with zebrafish neurobehavioral research.
