    Authors:  Alyssa C. Walker, Rohan Bhargava, Amanda S. Brust, Ali A. Owji and Daniel M. Czyż, date: 06/20/2022, view: 921, Q&A: 0

    Caenorhabditis elegans is a simple metazoan that is often used as a model organism to study various human ailments with impaired motility phenotypes, including protein conformational diseases. Numerous motility assays that measure neuro-muscular

    Vestibular Organ Dissection and Whole-Mount Immunolabeling in Mouse
    Authors:  Timothy S. Balmer and Laurence O. Trussell, date: 05/20/2022, view: 424, Q&A: 0

    The vestibular sensory apparatus contained in the inner ear is a marvelous evolutionary adaptation for sensing movement in 3 dimensions and is essential for an animal’s sense of orientation in space, head movement, and balance. Damage to these

    Identification and Monitoring of Nucleotide Repeat Expansions Using Southern Blotting in Drosophila Models of C9orf72 Motor Neuron Disease and Frontotemporal Dementia
    Authors:  Joanne L. Sharpe, Nikki S. Harper and Ryan J. H. West, date: 05/20/2022, view: 416, Q&A: 0

    Repeat expansion diseases, including fragile X syndrome, Huntington’s disease, and C9orf72-related motor neuron disease and frontotemporal dementia, are a group of disorders associated with polymorphic expansions of tandem repeat nucleotide

    Translating Ribosome Affinity Purification (TRAP) of Cell Type-specific mRNA from Mouse Brain Lysates
    Authors:  Catherine L. Salussolia, Kellen D. Winden and Mustafa Sahin, date: 05/05/2022, view: 627, Q&A: 0

    Mammalian tissues are highly heterogenous and complex, posing a challenge in understanding the molecular mechanisms regulating protein expression within various tissues. Recent studies have shown that translation at the level of the ribosome is

    High Throughput Blood-brain Barrier Organoid Generation and Assessment of Receptor-Mediated Antibody Transcytosis
    Authors:  Elena Kassianidou, Claire Simonneau, Alina Gavrilov and Roberto Villaseñor, date: 04/20/2022, view: 668, Q&A: 0

    Targeting receptor-mediated transcytosis (RMT) is a successful strategy for drug delivery of biologic agents across the blood-brain barrier (BBB). The recent development of human BBB organoid models is a major advancement to help characterize the

    Self-Paced Five-Choice Serial Reaction Time-Task for Mouse Behavioral Testing
    Authors:  Julie Cunningham, Leah Dinah Sheppard, Eduardo Listik and Qin Wang, date: 04/20/2022, view: 325, Q&A: 0

    The five-choice serial reaction time-task (5-CSRTT) is a behavioral rodent test that can assess executive functioning. It may be employed to analyze distinctive aspects of murine models for a plethora of diseases, such as attention deficit

    Stimulus-induced Robust Narrow-band Gamma Oscillations in Human EEG Using Cartesian Gratings
    Authors:  Dinavahi V. P. S. Murty and Supratim Ray, date: 04/05/2022, view: 460, Q&A: 0

    Stimulus-induced narrow-band gamma oscillations (20–70 Hz) are induced in the visual areas of the brain when particular visual stimuli, such as bars, gratings, or full-screen hue, are shown to the subject. Such oscillations are modulated by

    Multiplexing Thermotaxis Behavior Measurement in Caenorhabditis elegans
    Authors:  Stephan Raiders, Mason Klein and Aakanksha Singhvi, date: 04/05/2022, view: 857, Q&A: 0

    Thermotaxis behaviors in C. elegans exhibit experience-dependent plasticity of thermal preference memory. This behavior can be assayed either at population level, on linear temperature gradients, or at the individual animal level, by radial
