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
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.
An essential webinar for all scientists interested in startle response research -- Michael Kinder provides insight on the underlying technologies used in startle systems and explains what researchers should know about sensor capabilities and limitations and how that knowledge can help create effective protocols, address calibration and properly analyze data.
Dr. Will Redfern of AstraZeneca and Dr. Sara Wells of MRC Harwell discuss 24/7 monitoring of group-housed rodents in their true IVC racked home cage environment for safety pharmacology and phenotyping applications.
