Simon Schultz, PhD and Michael Goard, PhD address questions related to their research on studying neuronal circuits across major hippocampal regions, primarily using two-photon microscopy in awake head-fixed mice
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
John Hasenau and Stefano Gaburro answer questions from a webinar where they discuss current biosafety requirements and what home cage monitoring can teach us in bioexclusion and biocontainment studies.
It is well established that nesting materials are an important inclusion for mouse cages. We wanted to determine whether there was a significant difference in mice activity when offered three different material choices and whether there was any correlation between activity in the cage and nest complexity.
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.
In this episode of Expert Answers join Dr. Tim West and Matt Borkowski for a discussion on how to properly isolate and prepare, and assess muscle performance and contractile function in single muscle fibers.
Five experts from the University of Bristol, the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases, and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences answer questions from a webinar where they present methodology and research findings from neurophysiological studies in head-fixed, behaving mice.
