SnailFest Invertebrate Neurophysiology Workshop

SnailFest Invertebrate Neurophysiology Workshop at Emory University
ADInstruments and Emory University's Neuroscience & Behavioral Biology Program are excited to co-host this hands-on workshop August 11 - 13, 2017
* SAVE $100 BY REGISTERING BEFORE JUNE 1! *
Who Should Attend:
Higher Education Life Science instructors seeking to expand their curriculum reach in the neurosciences.
Key topics to be covered:
- Equipment and software for neurophysiological recording.
- Feeding behavior in snails as a model rhythmic pattern
- Extracellular recording of buccal nerves
- Intracellular recording from buccal and circumesophageal ganglia
- Neuromodulation and drug effects on intrinsic properties of cells
A hands-on workshop teaching practical laboratory skills for extracellular and intracellular recording. Snail buccal and circumesophageal ganglia are established models for motor pattern generation, neuronal excitability, neuromodulation, and investigation of the ionic currents that underlie complex activity patterns. The large cell bodies make them ideal for the teaching lab. We will use two species of pond snails, Lymnaea and Helisoma.
