ANIMAL / BEHAVIOURAL TEST
Mice and rats are the most commonly used vertebrate species, popular because of their availability, size, low cost, ease of handling, and fast reproduction rates. They are widely considered to be the prime model of inherited human diseases and share 99% of their genes with humans. Behavioral measures are used to detect or measure changes in CNS and PNS functions that may be produced by induced diseases, neural injuries, genetic modifications or exposure to various drugs and treatments.
