Including social behavior as part of a phenotypic screen has important benefits and eventually leads to better translational value of rodent models.
Behavior Analysis facility
Introducing the Behavioral Analysis Facility. Researchers evaluate the behavioral and functional activities of new pharmacological drugs using diverse functional tests. Learn more about their recent projects.
social housing and testing in rats in PhenoTyper
Rodent social behavior is important in research on neuropsychiatric disorders, but major limitations hamper progress.
Neuroscience 2017 - A great start!
We're looking back on the first conference days of Neuroscience 2017. Only two days left!
cognitionwall
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.
chicago neuroscience 2015
I have been talking to so many interesting people around here! Researchers, other vendors. The last day at Neuroscience 2015.
neuroscience 2015 chicago zebrafish booth
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.
home cage testing
Mouse models are essential for neuroscience research. Many tests are susceptible to bias. Home cage testing provides a number of solutions.
Farewell Berry Spruijt
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.
Parkinson's disease research
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.
