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.
