The Neurobehavioral Core was established by the Gladstone Institute of Neurological Disease to analyze neurobehavioral functions, such as motor coordination or learning and memory, in rodent models of human neurological diseases. Understanding the molecular pathways that impair such functions in experimental models can provide important insights into clinically relevant disease processes as well as into basic functions of the nervous system.

The Neurobehavioral Core offers a wide array of customizable behavioral paradigms to fit your specific research needs. We offer over 60 types of behavioral assessments in mice that fall within 3 broad domains: Sensorimotor, Anxiety/Emotional, and Cognitive. These behavioral assessments can help validate the effects of experimental compounds as well as animal models of neurological or disease states. The Core can create a customized behavioral research battery as well as develop new tasks to fit your specific research needs. The Core is staffed with 4 highly skilled research technicians with an average of 8 yrs of behavioral testing experience.

Olfactory Animal Models

Price on request

The olfactory habituation test is used to assess the ability of a subject to discriminate between novel and familiar odors. With repeated exposure, mice should habituate to a scent and investigation should rebound once a new scent has been introduced.
