To see if there is an effect of the activation of these neurons in general, I thought of bootstrapping all the flies containing NorpA without G4s to see if the statistics are similar to that of my screen.
here the final screen
Here a total of 37 Tmaze experiments containing NorpA with UAS-GtACRs, UAS-Chrimson or UAS-ChR2XXL but without G4. Experiments are from Naman, Gaia and me, here the pooled effect:
Here the barplot of the result of 12 samples (with repetitions) for 20 times. Considering 37 experiments are closer to the real true distribution of NorpA flies, we sample from them to observe the probability of obtaining false positives, as well as the distributions.
Here the boxplotFrom this results I would deduce that most of these neurons have no effect on their reinforcement. This idea came because I saw that the phenotype scores of th-G4+th-G80>Chrimson was always close to zero in all of the behavioral setups. I thought that this could show that the dopaminergic neurons have an effect that is context dependent and that is why PIs might be more extreme than with the negative control (th-G4+th-G80>Chrimson).
This is a quick edit to see how it would look with 32 lines (the same number as for the real screen)
