Type of Research Project
- Basic science
What is the background of the project?
In my laboratory, we just developed an animal model of colitis by psychological stress.
What is the aim of the project?
The aim of this project is to identify the interaction of two prefrontal cortex areas, medial prefrontal cortex and medial orbitofrontal cortex in the basolateral nuclei of amygdala, which is crucial for the formation and extinction of fear memory.
What techniques and methods are used?
The used techniques include the basic animal surgery, electrophysiological recordings and histological staining technique.
What is the role of the student?
- The tasks will be done under supervision
What are the tasks expected to be accomplished by the student?
not provided
Will there be any theoretical teaching provided (preliminary readings, lectures, courses, seminars etc)
None
What is expected from the student at the end of the research exchange? What will be the general outcome of the student?
- No specific outcome is expected
What skills are required of the student? Is there any special knowledge or a certain level of studies needed?
The student should be familiar with the basic zoology or biology but no previous laboratory skills are necessary. Do not be afraid to handle and sacrifice animals. Be nice to treat laboratory animals.
Are there any legal limitations in the student’s involvement
No
