The Core provides planning, execution, and analysis of behavioral experiments examining activity, arousal, coordinated movement, learning and memory, anxiety, depression, seizure susceptibility, reward/reinforcement, and aggression in mice and rats.
Additional tests can potentially be developed on a case-by-case basis.
The Behavioral Core also offers several rodent surgical services and assistance in IACUC protocol preparation.
