Social learning task in rats
At the Heinrich Heine University in Düsseldorf, Germany, PI Dr. Marijn van Wingerden and his PhD student Sander van Gurp study social learning behavior in rats. Their Social Rodent Lab uses EthoVision XT and UltraVox XT for their behavioral studies.
The team is trying to figure out whether something good happening to the partner rat, will affect learning processes in the observer rat. In other words, they are trying to figure out whether the rats can learn from each other. They hope to contribute to the development of potential interventions.
