Right now I’m attending the Janelia Farm Conference “Learning and Memory: A Synthesis of Flies and Honeybees”. It covers all the latest research results relevant to our research here. Big themes, of course, are olfactory classical conditioning. In this learning paradigm the biogenic amines octopamine and dopamine are very important, so all the new tools to control and investigate these aminergic networks presented here are very relevant for Christine‘s project. I’m blogging about the meeting in more detail on my own blog, so you can follow all the action from there.
