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.
Register for the 36th Annual Academy of Surgical Research Virtual Meeting to join surgical research professionals around the world in a two-day exploration of surgical techniques, research applications, technology advancements and industry trends.
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.
Suzie Buono discusses the work she and her team have done to provide an example of treating a dominant disease by targeting both alleles, suggesting that this strategy may be applied to other dominant diseases.
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.
Join Dr. Melanie White for a discussion on basic isolated Langendorff heart principles, key experimental design considerations, core technology requirements and best practice tips to support consistency and validation of your research.
Aaron Stupica and Keshari Thakali discuss techniques tissue bath myography and present a unique case study looking at the effect of maternal obesity on offspring perivascular adipose tissue and vascular function.
