Cold Spring Harbor Laboratorys 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: Analysis of Neural Development, Recording and Imaging Activities in the Nervous System, and Analyzing Behavior. 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.
