How do mice act in complete darkness?
How do mice act in complete darkness? Ann-Kristina Fritz and her colleagues ordered a large, round open field with IR backlight, custom made by Noldus, to investigate.
In one of my previous blog posts, I wrote about the success of insecticide treated bed nets in preventing malaria. In the past five years, mortality from malaria has dropped with 60%.

Looking back at the Neuroscience 2015 meeting in Chicago. It was a great show!

I have been talking to so many interesting people around here! Researchers, other vendors. The last day at Neuroscience 2015.

Neuroscience 2015. Meeting all those scientists, getting to ask them all about their research…there is a lot to take in. Here are some examples from today.

Time for some running action at Neuroscience 2015. And we had a satellite symposium!
medaka
We are all very familiar with zebrafish as a model species in neuroscience research. Today, let's talk about another fish, the Japanese medaka.
A new model for POCD in rats
This week we have a guest post by Iris Hovens. She has done some really interesting research into the consequences of surgery in terms of reduced memory and concentration problems.
Sexual selection can lead to fascinating phenomena. We are all familiar with the fabulous color display of male peacocks to attract females. Less well known, but definitely not less interesting, are stalk-eyed flies.
Bed nets treated with insecticide (ITNs) greatly decrease malaria illness and mortality. ITNs can decrease infant mortality from all causes by more than 20%.
home cage testing
Mouse models are essential for neuroscience research. Many tests are susceptible to bias. Home cage testing provides a number of solutions.
