Behavioral Pharmacology Workshop

In collaboration with the Stanford Behavioral and Functional Neuroscience Laboratory

The Workshop is a one week-long, in person, interactive course on practical, mechanistic, and ethological aspects of rodent behavioral testing for translational research with emphasis on applications for drug discovery and neurodegenerative disease models.

The course is comprised of theoretical and technical lectures as well as hands-on testing trials and demonstrations. The overall goal of the course is to enable researchers with minimal or no rodent behavioral experience to independently design, conduct, and analyze behavioral pharmacology studies. Topics may include learning & memory, sensory & motor, anxiety & mood, addiction, and automated methods.

This workshop is open to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as postdocs. Prior rodent handling experience is not required.
