This past weekend, Dr. Jonathan Bakin of A-M Systems joined respected scientists, post-docs, and graduate students at the 39th East Coast Nerve Net meeting, held at the Marine Biological Laboratories in Woods Hole, MA. Traditionally, this meeting has offered attendees an intimate setting to engage in wide ranging scientific discussions covering recent advances in model systems and Invertebrate neuroscience.

This year’s presentations revolved around genetic manipulations of behaviors and neural circuitry, and featured a keynote address by Dr. Edward Kravitz, of Harvard Medical School, on modeling aggression using fruit flies.

At the meeting, Dr. Bakin introduced our new Model 4100 High Power Isolated Stimulator, as well as answered technical questions about other A-M Systems instruments and products.

A-M Systems is proud to sponsor small meetings such as the E.C.N.N. that promote the use of electrophysiology in neuroscience. Additional information on the Nerve Net can be found at http://mars.wne.edu/ecnn/, or by contacting the event chair Dr. Jake Krans (jkrans@wne.edu).
