Join Dr. Berry Setlow as he discusses the behavioral and biological mechanisms of cost-benefit decision making in rodent models, with a focus on how substance use can affect variability and long-term consequences in decision making.
Dr. Sophie Pezet and Dr. Benjamin Vidal will discuss methodology, applications and new possibilities enabled by functional ultrasound (fUS) imaging, with a focus on chronic pain and neuropharmacology research.
Lais Berro, PhD presents recent research demonstrating the anxiolytic, sedative and abuse-related effects of benzodiazepine drugs, and how they correlate with telemetry-based EEG recordings in a translational non-human primate model.
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
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.
Chris Rand discusses the updated 200A Olfactometer from Aurora Scientific. He walks through setting up the system before sharing best practices, all while demonstrating the integral functions of the system.
Experts discuss the use of a novel movement responsive rodent caging system as a means to minimize animal stress and enable unique discovery in many research applications, namely neuroscience, animal behaviour, drug discovery and cardiometabolic disease.
