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 .

New experiments

I was trying to increase the differences between flies with clipped and intact wings, putting a paper covering the LEDs.

Results are not as good as I expected. The differences are lower than experiments done without this paper between LEDs and flies. I did experiments only with the big white LEDs (the ones which showed better results).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Comparison between voltages and size of white LEDs

on Wednesday, December 5th, 2012 1:33 | by

I continued doing experiments with big and small white LEDs, and now I think I have done enough experiments to compare them.

These are the final results, which seem to indicate that big white LEDs using 2,6V are the best ones to continue with the experiments.
