Tomorrow the 12th International Conference on Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases (ADPD) in Nice, France starts. Last week I blogged about a study on Ginkgo biloba and Alzheimer's, and I thought this would be a great opportunity to highlight some more studies and get you in the mood for the conference. This blog post features 10 interesting studies that use innovative techniques to study models of AD and PD and important underlying neuronal mechanisms.
Topics: EthoVision XT, mice, Alzheimer's disease, Video tracking, zebrafish, Danio rerio, DanioVision, Parkinson's Disease, learning and memory, rats, CatWalk XT, gait analysis, locomotion, top 10, ErasmusLadder, reflexive motor learning, motor performance
Do you attend conferences? Imagine networking with 30,000 fellow neuroscientists in beautiful San Diego, California. Now add the sun-soaked beaches (yes, even in November), a 0% chance of rain, many social events, and 15,000 scientific presentations: that’s why you should attend Neuroscience 2013! Not convinced yet? Here are 10 reasons why you should attend Neuroscience 2013!

Happy new year everybody! Yes, time goes by so fast. We already started a brand new year! We closed off 2012 with the most popular blog posts on human behavior research (listed in this post), so now let’s start 2013 with looking at the most popular blog posts on animal behavior research from last year.
