Within the Behavioral Neuroscience Program

It is common for students, postdocs and staff to learn procedures and use equipment across the Behavioral Neuroscience labs.  Expertise is available in numerous areas, including:

  • immunohistochemistry (including the use of multiple fluorescent markers)
  • radioimmunoassay
  • stereotaxic surgery
  • up- and down-regulation of gene expression
  • neuroanatomical tracing
  • histology
  • neural lesioning
  • neuropharmalogical manipulation
  • behavioral analysis across diverse functions (including learning/memory, affective, and motivated behaviors)
  • telemetric quantification of biological rhythms
  • Northern, Southern, and Western blot analyses
  • RT-PCR
  • in situ hybridization
  • primary cell culture

Elsewhere on Campus

  • State-of-the-art facilities and training are available in numerous areas, including:
  • confocal microscopy
  • electron microscopy
  • fMRI
  • DNA and protein sequencing
  • High performance computing
