Fall ATP Technology Seminar Series: Indiana University School of Medicine Behavioral Phenotyping Center

November 5, 2021 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm America/Indiana/Indianapolis Timezone

The Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) Research Core Technology Seminar Series is resuming for the fall. The next event will be on Friday, November 5 from 12:00 pm – 1:00pm.

Speaker name and title: David McKinzie, PhD, Director of Behavioral Phenotyping Center

Speaker institution: Indiana University School of Medicine

Hosted by: Indiana University School of Medicine Behavioral Phenotyping Center

The Behavioral Phenotyping Core (BPC) is located within the Stark Neurosciences Research Institute at the Indiana University School of Medicine.  The BPC has diverse capabilities to evaluate in vivo physiology and behavior of mice and rats. During this seminar you will learn about the automated technology we use to characterize sensory, motor, and autonomic functioning. We have multiple techniques to phenotype affective, motivational, and cognitive domains of behavior that may be altered by genetic, environmental, and pharmacological manipulations. Finally, we will discuss the power of linking behavioral outcomes with your pathology or ‘omics endpoints.

Register here. 

The purpose of this seminar series is to inform investigators about how existing or new technologies offered by the core facilities at Indiana University, Purdue University and the University of Notre Dame could be useful in advancing their research.
