Cognitive & Behavioral Screening of Individual Mice Living in a Social Group
The IntelliCage is a fully automated system that allows researchers to assess the home cage behavior and cognitive performance of up to 16 individual mice or 8 rats separately while they are living in a social environment. This unique cognitive-behavioral experimental paradigm helps researchers evaluate associate learning difficulties and conditioning responses, classified in neuro-degenerative pathologies like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and autism.
TSE Scientific Director Dr. Holger Russig will explain the behavioral construct of the hardware and software, followed by a case study presented by Dr. Vootele Voikar from the Laboratory Animal Center Helsinki Institute of Life Science.
Workshop is free of charge.
