Registration Deadline:  September 16, 2016

Organizers: Cyril HERRY - Véronique DEROCHE, Neurocentre Magendie, Bordeaux

Aims: This workshop will focus on the theory and practice of optogenetics coupled to in vivo electrophysiology in behaving rodents.

Topics:  This 3 days workshop will cover :

- Theoretical courses on in vivo electrophysiology and optogenetics principles; applications in the context of behavioral research

- Hands on courses will include :

  • Electrodes, optrodes and optical fibers manufacture
  • Stereotaxic cannula implantation and cerebral injection (Certification in experimental surgery required for this course)
  • Neurons optical stimulation for behavior testing and electrophysiological recording in real time
  • Results analysis and discussion

Selection:  Due to space limitation, only 10 participants will be enrolled in each course.

Attendees:  Postdoctoral students and researchers with knowledge in molecular genetics, optoelectronic, rodent behavioral analysis, clinical and ethical concepts.
