Sheep models in neuroscience research: Opportunities and challenges
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Postdoc Masterclass.
Neuroscience research relies on animal models to explore human brain function. Neuroscientists primarily use rodents for such research. Rodents, however, have a number of shortcomings when used for investigating the human brain. These shortcomings include their short lifespan, their small brain volume and relatively under-developed brains.
In this session, we will explore the use of sheep as a model for studying brain function and behaviour. We will describe how sheep can be used to address some of the shortcomings of rodents but also how they can serve to reduce the use of non-human primates in invasive electrophysiology and pharmacological studies. We will present results that relate to neurological disease research as well as technical development of translational neurotechnologies that use sheep as models of brain function.
