c-Fos and Arc Immunohistochemistry on Rat Cerebellum
Author:  Soyun Kim, date: 05/20/2012, view: 12647, Q&A: 0
This protocol aims to introduce methods for sacrificing rats by transcardial perfusion and extracting the brain, and introduce methods for staining the rat brain tissue with c-Fos and Arc antibodies. Please note the expression of the proteins is ...

The Object Context-place-location Paradigm for Testing Spatial Memory in Mice
This protocol was originally designed to examine long-term spatial memory in PKMζ knockout (i.e., PKMζ-null) mice (Tsokas et al., 2016). Our main goal was to test whether the ability of these animals to maintain previously acquired ...

Mouse Retinal Whole Mounts and Quantification of Vasculature Protocol
Authors:  Irit Adini and Kaustabh Ghosh, date: 08/05/2015, view: 4415, Q&A: 0
Angiogenesis is the formation of new blood vessels from a pre-existing vascular bed. It is a multi-step process beginning with enzymatic degradation of the capillary basement membrane, followed by endothelial cell (EC) proliferation, migration, tube ...

Sensitive Estimation of Flavor Preferences in STFP Using Cumulative Time Profiles
Authors:  Aditya Singh and J. Balaji, date: 11/05/2017, view: 360, Q&A: 0
Social transmission of food preference (STFP) is observed among rodents between a demonstrator and a naïve hungry observer. During social interaction, hungry observer receives information about safety of the food consumed by the demonstrator. This ...

Touchscreen-based Visual Discrimination and Reversal Tasks for Mice to Test Cognitive Flexibility
Authors:  Karly M. Turner, Christopher G. Simpson and Thomas H. J. Burne, date: 10/20/2017, view: 429, Q&A: 0
Reversal learning can be used to examine deficits in cognitive flexibility, which have been linked to a number of neuropsychiatric disorders including schizophrenia and addiction. However, methods of examining reversal learning have varied ...
