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.
Teresa Capriello and colleagues use zebrafish to study the neuronal mechanisms of heavy metals in connection to neurodegenerative and neuromuscular diseases.
During the annual Brain Awareness Week, international attention focuses on the brain to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research.
Parkinson’s disease: the neurodegenerative disorder that affects mobility in a life-changing way. Learn more about relevant measures in pre-clinical studies.
Let’s start 2019 with looking at the most popular blog posts on animal behavior research from last year. Our top 10 animal behavior blog posts from 2018.
Contrary to common methods, gait analysis can detect clinically relevant symptoms early on, researchers say.
About zebrafish and their important role in finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease.
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.
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?
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.
