Dear Researchers,
This is a kindly reminder that the registration deadline (August 15th) for the IBRO-APRC Georgian Associate School of Neuroscience workshops is approaching, and won’t be extended again.

1. "Multi-channel/Multi-unit Recording in Behaving Mice" workshop:
• Theoretical Section:
• Preparation of multichannel recordings electrodes/tetrodes
• Animal surgeries/multichannel/multi-unit recordings
• Data acquisition and storing
• Practical Section:
• Pain Management
Description: The overall goal of this experiment is demonstration of a general framework for the peripheral nervous system (PNS) recording via the eLab recording system which is manufactured by ScienceBeam company. We are going to conduct an animal experiment on Sciatic nerve branches such as Tibial and Peroneal nerve to detect nociceptive pain induced by noxious mechanical stimulation in ipsilateral paw. (Watch what you’ll learn: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFhQOt71xjQ&feature=emb_title )
• Locomotion Management
Description: The overall goal of the following experiment is to use the eLab system for recording and electrical stimulation of the spinal cord in order to control hindlimb kinematic in the rat model. This is achieved by delicately removing the skin and muscle layers over the spinal column and identifying the correct vertebral target. Next, a laminectomy is performed on the targeted vertebra to expose the spinal cord. Then microelectrode is implanted on the spinal segments to record neural activity such as local field potential and spike to decode air-stepping motion or deliver electrical pulses to manage hindlimb locomotion.

2. "EEG/ERP Recording and Analysis" workshop:

Through the lecture, you will learn about the basics of EEG signal, how to record it, and different approaches to EEG signal processing, that are more or less commonly adopted in cognitive neuroscience. You will learn about EEG signal pre-processing and how to compute ERPs, Microstates, and Time-frequency maps as a function of experimental manipulations and designs. This will be illustrated by case studies in the electrophysiology of language. There will be a focus on critical thinking about the choices of analyses as a function of research questions, challenges depending on experimental designs, and parameters to pay attention to. At the end of the lecture, you will know the strengths and weaknesses of these tools and will be able to decide which measure would be best adapted to your scientific investigations about cognition.
