    Microplastic Extraction from Marine Vertebrate Digestive Tracts, Regurgitates and Scats: A Protocol for Researchers from All Experience Levels
    Authors:  Amy L. Lusher and Gema Hernandez-Milian, date: 11/20/2018, view: 2063, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] It is essential to provide a protocol for the separation and identification of microplastics in marine vertebrates (mammals, birds, turtles and fish) that is easy to follow and adaptable depending on research infrastructure. Digesting organic material is an effective way to analyze samples for microplastics. Presented here is an optimized protocol ...
    Spinal Cord Preparation from Adult Red-eared Turtles for Electrophysiological Recordings during Motor Activity
    Authors:  Peter C Petersen and Rune W Berg , date: 07/05/2017, view: 5478, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Although it is known that the generation of movements is performed to a large extent in neuronal circuits located in the spinal cord, the involved mechanisms are still unclear. The turtle as a model system for investigating spinal motor activity has advantages, which far exceeds those of model systems using other animals. The high resistance to ...
