Self learning test and long-term memory test of TrpA1 from optogenetic training

on Monday, September 4th, 2017 2:20

TrpA1 self learning test, N= 47

TrpA1 long term memory, N= 39

Wtb long term memory (previous on fly simulator), N= 16


self-learning update

on Friday, July 21st, 2017 4:11

N= 31

update on self learning test comparsion

on Monday, July 17th, 2017 12:40

30 from each lines, no statistially difference among them. I will keeping testing on flight simultor before transgenic flies hatch.


Correct the longterm memory results

longterm memory test

on Monday, June 19th, 2017 1:55

N= 30, p-value = 0.66


Rescue from forS in visual memory defects:

adult-limit for expression in fan-shape body (c205-Gal80ts)

increase for expression in ellipsoid body (c819-Gal80ts)


R,S,WTB updates, and methods to inhibate PKG

on Monday, June 12th, 2017 10:31

Rover,N= 36

Sitter, N= 28

WTB, N= 13

PKG affects K channels

Two ways to inhibitatePKG:


UAS-Gal4, RNAi




PKG inhibitors:

  1. KT 5823(10mM in DMSO)
  2. (irrversible)



Updates on R,S,WTB tests

on Friday, May 26th, 2017 1:20

Rover, N=3

sitter, N=2

wtb, N=4

longterm, N=13 (old WTB excluded)

R,S self learning traces, and longterm memory trace

WTB self learning traces, longterm memory trace

newWTB vs oldWTB

on Monday, May 22nd, 2017 10:37

The behavior of new and old WTB seems different, but since only a few flies are tested, the results are not conclusive.

newWTB =3, PI= 0.35

old WTB from last month = 7,  PI=0.04

flying trace,

wtb72 (old, left punishment)

wtb 74,78 (new, right punishment)

update on rover&sitter test and longterm memory test

on Friday, May 12th, 2017 3:41



longterm memory N= 22

control N= 6
