Determining the best housing strategy for mice

When using animal models for scientific research, their welfare should be a priority. Here, we're looking at the effects of different housing strategies for mice, and how PhenoTyper provides researchers with insight.

Quantifying locomotion in rats using CatWalk XT

Gait analysis is a powerful tool in evaluating behavioral and physiological changes in clinical and pre-clinical rodent models.

Using CatWalk XT to analyze variations in gait performance in adolescent mice

Rodents are the most common model organisms in biomedical research. Automated gait analysis provides a precise and objective means of analyzing behavioral and physiological changes in rodent models.

Examples of Animal Behavior Research

Researchers in ethology are interested in understanding all aspects of animal behavior. We have highlighted some great examples of Animal Behavior Research on our Behavioral Research Blog.

How to study human behavior

Many people are fascinated by human behavior. Why do we act the way we do? How is our behavior influenced, or measured? And why is behavioral change so difficult?

Declared vs revealed data

How do consumer researchers get valuable data? Consumer and market researchers can turn to observation and experimentation to observe consumers. Declared vs. revealed data.

Serotonin and social skills: how adult mice differ from juveniles

Serotonin is a busy neurotransmitter, influencing processes as memory, mood, emotion, appetite, and sexuality. A prime role for this neurotransmitter is social behavior, across a variety of species; humans, rodents, primates.
