Social interaction in rodents - now and the future (panel discussion)
This discussion panel is aimed to facilitate information exchange and experience sharing between scientists using social interaction (SI) paradigms in their research. It would be unique occasion to gather numerous scholars who are involved in behavioral analysis of SI as well as researches that are thinking about employing such approach. During the discussion we would like to put emphasis on several important topics: (1) what are the obstacles that suppress wider use of SI paradigms in neuroscience; (2) ethological relevance of SI paradigms versus their analytical complexity; (3) communication between scientists – the necessity of detailed paradigms description, experimental conditions and clear analytical criteria; (4) automation and computer based analysis of behavior from user’s experience perspective; (5) project of web-based discussion forum with idea and data sharing; (6) custom made solutions, tips and tricks.
