Aplysia operant conditioning @ Scholarpedia
Recycling a review article from 2003 as base, I've started to write a Scholarpedia article on Aplysia operant conditoning. While the content concerning operant reward learning is basically complete, this is currently sti...[more]

Cognition workshop at Macquarie in Sydney

After an unusually rewarding and exciting SfN meeting in New Orleans with many ideas and new tools for the next experiments, I spent a day at my old lab in Houston, Texas to record some new, higher resolution videos of s...[more]

and another tiny step ahead
Today was a good day (despite it being Monday, hehe ). First, the dissection went really well (see pics). Using this preparation, we found out that the ganglia are still capable of producing buccal motor programs after...[more]

How brains generate variable behavior Animals constantly have to adapt to varying environmental conditions, explore new situations and figure out new strategies to catch prey or avoid predators. On the other hand, they need to be able to behave consistently...[more]

Sea slug genetics reveal learning machinery
The sea slug Aplysia has been a popular model for learning and memory for almost 40 years now. It can perform simple learning tasks and its brain cells (neurons) are so large, they are very easy to experiment on. With th...[more]

After 40 years of research, there may be a reason why Aplysia can learn I'm currently in sunny southern California for some experiments at UCSD. This is the place where one can find the marine snail Aplysia in its natural habitat. As I've been working with Aplysia for about ten years now, I...[more]

Great review on sea slug learning
There's a great new article out in the journal Learning & Memory. It reviews the recent developments in the field of conditioning the feeding behavior of the sea slug Aplysia. You can see an example of what this beha...[more]
