Mini-workshop: “Introduction to Experimental Neuroscience”

Date: 5 full days, 26th-30th october 2020 Public: Master students The Bordeaux School of Neuroscience, University of Bordeaux. Mini-projects and methodologies: Neuronal cell biology (neuronal cultures, transfections, live imaging, western blotting, PCR) Slice electrophysiology (patch-clamp and optogenetics) Neurocomputation Brain surgery, in vivo stereotactic injections, neuroanatomy Mouse behaviour and in vivo electrophysiology.

This mini-workshop is targeted to Master students, particularly those whose internship has been impacted by the COVID-19 restrictions last term. This intensive mini-workshop will expose students to key methodologies in neuroscience, through hands-on training. They will be guided by PhD students and Engineers to work on a short project at the Bordeaux School of Neuroscience, a research laboratory fully dedicated to training activities.

Mini-projects and methodologies:

  • Neuronal cell biology (neuronal cultures, transfections, live imaging, western blotting, PCR)
  • Slice electrophysiology (patch-clamp and optogenetics)
  • Neurocomputation
  • Brain surgery, in vivo stereotactic injections, neuroanatomy
  • Mouse behaviour and in vivo electrophysiology.
