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.
Scientists present data on 2-photon imaging of hippocampal place cells and on stress monitoring in head-fixed awake behaving mice.
Scientists present case studies featuring single-cell electrophysiology and 2-photon microscopy in head-fixed, behaving mice.
