My internship at ICM-CSIC was an inspiring journey enriched by a vibrant research environment. The institute's welcoming spirit was a remarkable experience. Learning new technology applied in animal behavior research provided priceless experiences during my stay at the ICM-CSIC. Acquiring advanced expertise in EthoVision XT, a challenging program for examining the behavior of aquatic animals (Fish and Crustaceans), was one of the highlights of my stay in Barcelona, Spain. This skill has opened new horizons in my understanding of animal behavior.
I gained a deeper understanding of academic concepts by participating in the seminars offered at the ICM-CSIC complex. Additionally, I'm happy to convey that our collaboration with the Renewable Marine Resources laboratory at ICM-CSIC was successful. I learned the matrix system (El Temps and idTracker) software used for circadian rhythm analysis, paving the way for ground-breaking knowledge in these important areas.
I would like to express my sincere appreciation to my laboratory (Laboratory of Freshwater Ecosystems), our faculty (FFPW-RIFCH), and CENAKVA for providing me with this priceless opportunity. The experiences and knowledge gained during the three-month internship have undoubtedly set the course for my future endeavors.
