The radial arm maze is an apparatus consisting of a circular center compartment from which 8 equally spaced «arms» extend. Researchers use it to measure two forms of memory known as “reference memory” and “working memory.”
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.
Looking for the best neuroscience conferences to add to your 2022 calendar? We’ve put together a short list of the best (behavioral) neuroscience conferences to attend this year.
In this blog post we will discuss the pros and cons of different gait assessing methods, and compare them to the CatWalk XT gait analysis method.
CatWalk XT has been used for gait analysis in multiple studies and has helped experimental procedures for a number of neurological disorders and in lesion models. These 3 blogs tell you more about that!
The elevated zero maze (EZM) is a variation on the elevated plus maze (EPM) and was created to eliminate the center region of the EPM. This blog highlights 3 studies that use the EZM to test for anxiety-like behavior
Gait analysis is a powerful tool in evaluating behavioral and physiological changes in clinical and pre-clinical rodent models.
In this blog you’ll find five webinars on EthoVision XT from five different angles. Each webinar will get you more in depth on how to use EthoVision XT in your own study or research.
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.
The Barnes maze is a behavioral paradigm for testing learning and memory in rodents models for autism spectrum disorder, Alzheimer’s disease and ageing. How does it compare to the Morris water maze?
