Dear FUN friends,

The CrawFly Cornell workshop is back in-person after 2 years!  Save the date: June 7-11, 2022.

This workshop is taught by the CrawFly Faculty: Jim Ryan (Hobart-William Smith Colleges), Ron Hoy, David Deitcher and me (Cornell University), Ilya Vilinsky (University of Cincinnati), Karen Hibbard (HHMI at Janelia Research Campus), Bob Wyttenbach (Emory University) and ADInstruments educators lead by David Riem.   We’ll present lab exercises to teach fundamental principles of signal transmission in the nervous system, tutorials on the use of LabChart software for acquisition and analysis of electrophysiological data and for control of direct electrical and opto-genetic nerve stimulation in crayfish and fruit flies.   DIY sessions include construction of micromanipulators and optogenetic light boxes to take home, and demonstration of the building and use of an inexpensive DIY fluorescence microscope for teaching and research.  In lunch sessions, we’ll brainstorm best practices in laboratory and classroom teaching, including virtual instruction, interdisciplinary training for students and educators for big data neuroscience, and see the latest educational developments by BackYardBrains.

Soon we’ll send out scholarship information and the registration site with more detailed information for this neuroscience educator workshop.

Happy Spring!
