In this episode of Expert Answers, Drs. Subramanian & Enzmann share case studies and experimental data from various applications using a newly developed automated system to measure vision based on the optomotor reflex.
Experts discuss an innovative and scalable home cage monitoring solution called Digital Ventilated Cage (DVC), showing how it can be used to study neurodegenerative diseases and monitor biorhythmicity of small rodents.
Julio Ayala, PhD and Matthew Robinson, PhD share their research focusing on feeding behavior in mice and the effects of stress and exercise on metabolism. They will discuss neuronal activity and high-fat diets as well as mitochondrial remodeling and exercise training in mouse models of obesity.
In this webinar, experts at The Myers Neuro-Behavioral Core Facility at Tel-Aviv University address specific advantages and limitations of today's home cage monitoring (HCM) technology used in behavioral research.
Joanna Moore and Kenneth Dyar present applications of the DVC® system from different research perspectives and discuss how home cage monitoring can be used to study animal model development, physiology and behavior
A growing body of evidence suggests that Home Cage Monitoring studies are becoming key tools for in vivo animal research for three main reasons: reduction in animal distress thereby increasing welfare, minimization of biases (wanted and unwanted), and increased reproducibility of data.
An essential webinar for all scientists interested in startle response research -- Michael Kinder provides insight on the underlying technologies used in startle systems and explains what researchers should know about sensor capabilities and limitations and how that knowledge can help create effective protocols, address calibration and properly analyze data.
Dr. Will Redfern of AstraZeneca and Dr. Sara Wells of MRC Harwell discuss 24/7 monitoring of group-housed rodents in their true IVC racked home cage environment for safety pharmacology and phenotyping applications.
