Delayed-matching-to-place Task in a Dry Maze to Measure Spatial Working Memory in Mice
Authors:  Xi Feng, Karen Krukowski, Timothy Jopson and Susanna Rosi, date: 07/05/2017, view: 1136, Q&A: 0
The delayed-matching-to-place (DMP) dry maze test is a variant of DMP water maze (Steele and Morris, 1999; Faizi et al., 2012) which measures spatial working/episodic-like learning and memory that depends on both hippocampal and cortical ...

In vivo Leukemogenesis Model Using Retrovirus Transduction
Authors:  Hiroshi Okuda and Akihiko Yokoyama, date: 12/05/2017, view: 125, Q&A: 0
Various genetic alterations such as chromosomal translocation cause leukemia. For examples, gene rearrangements of the mixed-lineage leukemia (MLL) gene generate MLL fusion genes, whose products are potent oncogenic drivers in ...

Thinned-skulled Cranial Window Preparation (Mice)
Authors:  Lifeng Zhang, Bo Liang, Yun Li and Da-Ting Lin, date: 03/05/2017, view: 1550, Q&A: 0
Imaging structural plasticity or activity of neurons in the brain circuit will facilitate understanding the neural mechanisms underlying animal behavior. Here we describe a modified procedure, the polished and reinforced thinned-skull cranial window ...

Formalin Murine Model of Pain
Pain research is mostly based on experimental assays that use animal models, which may allow deciphering the physiopathology of this condition and to propel drug discovery. The formalin nociception test is considered one of the most predictive ...

Proboscis Extension Reflex in Apis mellifera [Honeybee] with Only One Antenna
Authors:  Yu Guo, Zilong Wang, Zhijiang Zeng, Shaowu Zhang and Runsheng Chen, date: 12/05/2017, view: 101, Q&A: 0
The proboscis extension reflex (PER) is a common classical conditioned reflex which is widely used in the neurology and ethology. In honeybees, PER experiments can train bees to associate an odor with a reward or punishment. Here we present a ...
