The T-Maze experiments : Middle analysis and Correlation plot

on Saturday, July 14th, 2018 12:06 | by

The mean ratio of the flies that stay in the middle during the experiments.

Correlation plot between the mean ratio of the flies that stay in the middle versus the Weighted PIs

Slope = 0.0053
Intercept = 0.240
R square value = -0.03834

contrary to the expectations, there seems to be no correlation .

Good bye Lena, welcome Weitian!

Lena Matzeder just finished her Bachelor thesis, entitled “Is anxiety a factor influencing photo-preference in Drosophila melanogaster?“. She administered Diazepam (valium) to flies and asked them if that changed their preference for bright or dark places. A warm welcome to Weitian Sun, a Master’s student who will be testing candidate genes for their involvement in operant self-learning.

lab.brembs.net clean again

I have now cleaned the site from all malicious code and installed a few new plug-ins which I still need to properly adjust all settings. The site should now almost be back to normal, please resume posting your data and let me know if there is anything that still needs fixing!

I have just realized that there is no “new comment” section, so we have access only to the last 3 comments. Since there is also no way to have them as rss feeds (only public posts are feeded), it makes it possible to loose track of comments, if somebody (like I just did) look and comment the posts only once in a while.

Is there a way to manage this?

Mine is bigger than yours!

My camera is bigger than Julien’s :mrgreen: I realized that the camera I had been using to track the laser position in my flight simulator didn’t quite fit with the way everything is arranged now. I remembered I had seen an old camera in the basement, so I went there to check it out. It worked really well and it provides a fantastic picture of the fly. It’s just that it is now the largest piece of the equipment:

“Beyond the PDF” workshop at Science Online London 2011

on Saturday, September 17th, 2011 2:13 | by

Martin Fenner demonstrated how to use his three WordPress plugins: BibTex Importer, Link to Link and KCite to introduce citations to scientific articles into a blog post. I have now installed these plugins and will insert a few citations below to see how easy this is:

This is a reference for a paper on Drosophila [cite source=’doi’ rel=’cito:cites’]10.1016/j.neuroscience.2011.06.058[/cite] and this is one on Hermissenda [cite source=’doi’ rel=’cito:cites’]10.1016/j.neuroscience.2011.06.063[/cite] or one on the leech [cite source=’doi’ rel=’cito:cites’]10.1242/jeb.057224[/cite]. If this worked, there should be a reference list at the bottom of this post.

In the afternoon part of the workshop Eva Amsen showed how to link a blog post to researchblogging.org, which is what I already demoed in our journal club, so I won’t cover it here.

Now, after two weeks, my provider is fiddeling with some settings to make the citation plugins working. Looking good so far! We have citations!
