Investigating Scarless Tissue Regeneration in Embryonic Wounded Chick Corneas Manish Pathuri1, James Spurlin III2, Peter Lwigale2, Tyler Schwend1 1Department of Biology, Illinois Wesleyan University, 2Department of Biosciences, Rice University The present protocol demonstrates the different steps involved in wounding the cornea of an embryonic chick in ovo. The regenerating or fully restored corneas can be analyzed for regenerative potential using various cellular and molecular techniques following the wounding procedure.
Measuring Neural and Behavioral Activity During Ongoing Computerized Social Interactions: An Examination of Event-Related Brain Potentials Jason R. Themanson1 1Psychology Department, Illinois Wesleyan University Research on social exclusion has grown tremendously in recent years. As the field expands, it is imperative to develop sophisticated methodologies allowing for the simultaneous measurement of neural and behavioral outcomes during social exclusion. This protocol utilizes event-related brain potentials to record ongoing neural activity during computerized social interactions.
Compensatory Limb Use and Behavioral Assessment of Motor Skill Learning Following Sensorimotor Cortex Injury in a Mouse Model of Ischemic Stroke Abigail L. Kerr1, Kelly A. Tennant2 1Psychology Department, Illinois Wesleyan University, 2Division of Medical Sciences, University of Victoria Mouse models have become increasingly popular in studies of behavioral neuroscience. As models advance, it is important to develop sensitive behavioral measures specific to the mouse. This protocol describes the Pasta Matrix Reaching Task, which is a skilled motor task for use in mouse models of stroke.
