It seems that there is something more there. There were 5 batches of 3 flies per side reinforced. I put the intensity higher than ever before. I will try to get the maximum intensity for the next experiment and see what it looks like.

I have decreased the light intensity to around half of what it previously was. The result do not show any clear phenotype. The ‘logical PI’ looks kind of inverted because I actually have plotted it so that positive means light, negative means no light. A total of 30 flies were tested: some of them with right, other with left reinforcement

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
wtb72 (old, left punishment)
wtb 74,78 (new, right punishment)

I want to continue on the Diazepam project and look if Serotonergic or Gabaergic circuits are involved in modulating photo-preference in flies. To begin with, I tried to replicate Lena’s experiments involving the individual T-maze. Each fly was introduced at the decision point of the T maze and once the fly moves towards either the light or the dark, it was pulled out of the T-maze using suction and reintroduced to the decision point (Each fly was tested ten times). In the first few days, I tried to standardise the apparatus and the light intensity. The results below indicate the choice index of normal and clipped WTB flies.
