Primate Neurobiology: Research, Methods, Ethics
This advanced course on primate neurobiology methods (mandatory for GTPN members) focussed on important behavioral, experimental and data analytical methods for researchers working with nonhuman primates (NHPs) in neurophysiological settings. Important topics included among others behavioral training, housing & welfare, law & regulations, documentation, public outreach and ethics with respect to the planning and execution of neurobiological experiments with NHPs.
Primate Neurobiology Methods
This advanced course on primate neurobiology methods focussed on further important behavioral, experimental and data analytical methods for researchers working with NHPs in neurophysiological settings. Topics included cage-based animal training, animal husbandary and veterinary care, MRI imaging, massively parallel recording, and the analysis of neural data.
Primate Neurobiology Methods: Behavior, Experiments, Analysis, and Ethics
This advanced course on primate neurobiology methods (mandatory for GTPN members) focuses on important behavioral, experimental and data analytical methods for researchers working with NHPs in neurophysiological settings. Important topics include behavioral training, implantation techniques, anesthesia, data acquistion, analysis, welfare, and ethics with respect to the planning and execution of neurobiological experiments with NHPs. The course expands on previous NHP lab animal science courses (such as those taught recently in Göttingen).
