Delta Phenomics and Noldus IT are offering a one-day course in the use of EthoVision XT. You will learn how to set up an experiment, including making arena and detection settings, carry out tracking and analyze your data to quantify the behaviors of your animals. Special attention will be paid to practical aspects of using the system, which will include hands-on exercises with rats/mice in Delta Phenomics’ state-of the-art facility. The course will use examples from the most commonly used mazes and tests. If you notify your trainer in advance we can make sure that the tests you carry out will be specifically dealt with.
This is a very nice opportunity; it offers the possibility to ask your questions directly to experienced staff who have worked with EthoVision for many years and know all the practical tricks involved with tracking animals during standard tests. Moreover, you will have the chance to experience how behavioral experiments are conducted in a professional lab like that of a contract research company.
Transport (and, if required, overnight accommodation) can be arranged for the participants, but then there are extra costs involved. Registration is limited to 8 attendees, so early registration is advised.
