Rodent Behavioral Core

Overview of Services

The School of Medicine's Rodent Behavioral Core exists to provide a convenient resource for investigators at CWRU and other nearby institutions, producing in-depth characterization of rodent behavior with state of the art rodent behavioral testing equipment, methodology and expertise. The core facility is equipped to perform a comprehensive battery of behavioral tests in mice and rats to thoroughly, and objectively characterize and quantify the phenotype of overall motor and sensory function as well as other specific behaviors that may be of interest to investigators including learning and memory, place/fear conditioning, pain/analgesia, anxiety-related, depression-related behaviors, and various social behaviors with a high degree of repeatability. The facility can assist in all aspects of rodent behavioral testing including design and execution of behavioral tasks as well as data analysis and interpretation. The facility is located in the Health Sciences Animal Facility.
