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 rate. They are widely considered to be the prime model of inherited human disease 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 injury, genetic modification or exposure to various drugs and treatments.
