Sylics recently introduced CognitionWall, a new paradigm for discrimination learning in the home cage that avoids the necessity for food restriction and handling in learning tests.
Yesterday Alexxai Kravitz (National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD, USA) stopped by in our booth to show us a feeding device his lab created. It's a perfect fit with PhenoTyper and EthoVision XT.
I have been talking to so many interesting people around here! Researchers, other vendors. The last day at Neuroscience 2015.
Neuroscience 2015. Meeting all those scientists, getting to ask them all about their research…there is a lot to take in. Here are some examples from today.
Mouse models are essential for neuroscience research. Many tests are susceptible to bias. Home cage testing provides a number of solutions.
Prof. Dr. Berry M. Spruijt recently retired from his position at Utrecht University. I had the honor of attending the symposium that was organized to reflect on and celebrate his career.
These studies specifically investigate the long-term effects of L-DOPA or levopoda, a common clinical treatment for Parkinson's disease, with which many patients struggle.
Traditional standard tests with rats or mice are carried out immediately after human interference. Therefore, the behavior of the animals may not be natural and spontaneous.
Here are six recommendations the authors list to improve the translational and predictive value of behavioral readouts.
Scientists have been performing open field tests for quite some time now. Over the years it has become one of the most popular tests in rodent behavioral research. So what’s not to love?
