The Use of Home Cage Monitoring to Determine Whether Individual Male Mouse Activity Patterns Correlate with Nest Complexity

The Use of Home Cage Monitoring to Determine Whether Individual Male Mouse Activity Patterns Correlate with Nest Complexity

VIRTUAL POSTER

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.

Locomotor Activity: refinement, reduction and replicability ‘round the clock in animal studies

Locomotor Activity: refinement, reduction and replicability ‘round the clock in animal studies

VIRTUAL POSTER

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.
