Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory's long-running Neurobiology of Drosophila course has trained a generation of neuroscientists, many of whom have become leaders in the field. "Drosophila Neurobiology: A Laboratory Manual" offers the detailed protocols and background material developed by the course instructors to all researchers interested in using Drosophila as an experimental model for investigating the nervous system. The manual covers three approaches to the field: Studying Neural Development in Drosophila melanogaster, Recording and Imaging in the Drosophila Nervous System, and Studying Behavior in Drosophila. Techniques described include molecular, genetic, electrophysiological, imaging, behavioral and developmental methods. Written by leading experts from the community, "Drosophila Neurobiology: A Laboratory Manual" is an essential guide for researchers at all levels, from the beginning graduate student through the established primary investigator.
This almost 'foolproof' manual is a 'must have' for every Drosophila neurobiology laboratory, and is a tribute to the creativity of the fly community for steadily advancing technologies to label, manipulate, or examine neurons....Each chapter is well organized, and features a concise introduction, critical references, and detailed experimental protocols that cover basic and cutting-edge techniques, many of which have revolutionized the way we do research....Positively, this specialized manual will be an unparalleled resource for the fly neurobiology novice and aficionado.
