it would be good to link news and projects, to have the news appearing on the main page and on the project page.

first flight simulator experiment

on Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009 5:34

While Bjoern is in Hawaii, I used the flight simulator.

I got sufficient good flies to do 4 experiments. That’s really encouraging that the majority of the flies survived, kept their hook and flew for more than the 20 minutes required!

The other side of the coin is that I did not had any learning effect, and fly do not even avoid the punished side during the training phases: it seems something’s wrong with the laser. I bet that there is a very important trick I don’t know about the laser alignment…

but Everything will work!

things progressing

after one week, the pattern of my work here start to emerge: flies are ordered, crossings are planned, and a beautiful side project (waiting for the new flight simulator) is planned:
establish appetitive olfactory learning in Berlin.

My last post-doc dealt with appetitive learning, I would love to do one last control experiment in Berlin with a new protocol. The use of a H-maze will be more “hand-made” paradigm, but if it works well, it may well be developed further…

nice time to come…

Monday, I will present my project(s)… have to work on it!
