What are the consequences of diabetes?
Silymarin is a substance that works as an antioxidant, is anti-inflammatory and increases BDNF levels. When diabetes caused anxiety, and decreases learning and memory capabilities, silymarin might help.
White and brown rat walking on a branch
Chronic social stress has a huge impact on well-being. Gamma oscillations have been found to be an electrophysiological link between social stress and reward processing.
The city of Augsburg
A few months ago, we organized our very first User Meeting about EthoVision XT and external data integration! The meeting included interesting talks, discussions, and demonstrations with a diverse group of participants.
Is A Unique Calcium Regulating Mechanism A Cause Of Gulf War Illness?
Gulf War Illness (GWI) is potentially caused by organophosphate exposure. Through behavioral experiments, using a DFP rat model, researchers tested levetiracetam as a potential cure.
Gut microbes: both cause and cure of autism?
Gut microbes can increase or decrease typical autism spectrum disorder behavior (stereotypies, social behavior, locomotion, and communication) via metabolites and influencing alternative gene splicing.
Stereotypical effect on cognitive bias
Stressed-induced stereotypical behavior in lab mice have different effects on cognition. The radial arm maze is often used to investigate this.
Mouse video tracking EthoVision XT
The temperature of the tail and eyes of rodents is indicative of their emotional state. What would be the effect of a specific predator cue?
Rats doing exercise
Recent research has shown that rats induced with Alzheimer’s disease suffered less from the effects of the disease when subjected to exercise.
Brown mouse with outstretched tail
As a potential Alzheimer medicine, betaine was tested on an AD animal model in a novel object recognition test. Using video tracking, scientists studied the influence of betaine and betaine transporter on mouse memory.
Researching learning and memory
Scientists have found out that a low dose of the tranquilizer diazepam reduces the breakdown of neurons, seen in the development of Alzheimer’s disease.
Research in the brain sciences
During the annual Brain Awareness Week, international attention focuses on the brain to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research.
