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.
Parkinson's disease research
Parkinson’s disease: the neurodegenerative disorder that affects mobility in a life-changing way. Learn more about relevant measures in pre-clinical studies.

Autism is often associated with social behavior deficits and repetitive behaviors. However, motor abnormalities are also a part of the behavioral spectrum. Recent studies have implicated the cerebellum.
CatWalk XT
Letting animals walk freely in gait research. At Noldus, we strongly believe this is the way to go, so that is how our CatWalk XT system works.

Myelination, the ‘ensheathment’ of neurons, is essential to the functioning of the central and peripheral nervous systems. So it is not surprising that problems with myelination can lead to a number of crippling diseases.

Ataxia is a common problem in Parkinson’s disease (PD), and many early onset Alzheimer’s disease patients (AD) also deal with it. Now there is a non-invasive test for mouse models.
Alzheimer's research
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a huge public health issue as it affects a large part of the aging population. Neuropathology is studied primarily in the end stages of the disease. What about prevention?
gait research CatWalk XT
Researchers use different ways to analyze gait in animals. In what instances would a study benefit from a system that is based on voluntary walking?
Parkinson's
Gait impairment is one of the most prominent symptoms of Parkinson's disease. For good research you need good models and good tests.

The cerebellum, our “little brain”, is all about motor control; more specifically, it’s about coordination, precision, and timing.
