Technical overview and discussion of single unit DA cell recordings in awake animals

This term’s meeting will see Paul Dodson and Anna Kaufmann from the MRC Anatomical Neuropharmacology unit discussing their area of expertise of in vivo recordings of single DA cell activity in awake animals. They will be covering technical considerations when embarking on and conducting these experiments, what such recordings are telling us about tonic and burst firing modes in DA neurons, as well as presenting exciting new data from their own experiments. Please come along and support the meeting and its lively discussions.

DA Club is an informal, lab-meeting style forum promoting interaction between researchers interested in dopamine. Meetings are open to anyone within the University. Doors will be open from 4:00 for drinks, nibbles and a chance to catch up with potential and current collaborators with talks and discussion between 4:30-5:30. Please get in touch with if you have any questions or wish to be added to the mailing list. You can also visit\dopamine-club for more details.
