The replicability of measuring behavior

Organisers: Ilan Golani and Neri Kakafi, University of Tel Aviv

Schedule: 14:00 - 15:20 Wednesday 27th August, Kleine Veerzaal

With the establishment of huge data bases of behavioral and physiological phenotypes of genetically engineered mice, where each genotype is typically represented by a single set of data, it becomes increasingly important to establish not only significant differences between strains and preparations but also replicable results across laboratories.

There is now a growing discussion in the literature about how to test results for their replicability. In this symposium we will take a lead in that discussion.
