APS Annual Meeting at Experimental Biology

Current Approaches for Measuring Respiratory Activity in Animals: Recognizing and Avoiding Common Pitfalls

Workshop — Thursday, April 22, 2021 — 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM — Virtual Session, Room Zoom Meeting
Techniques Workshop Program — Chair: David Fuller — Co-Chair: Melissa Bates

This session will focus on theoretical and practical aspects of techniques used to measure breathing and associated physiological variables in unanesthetized adult and neonatal animals.

This workshop will be held outside the EB 2021 virtual meeting platform and will be free for all, however you must register.
