Basic Science: Pain Models


803 A

Automated Behavior and Activity Rodent Home Cage Monitoring

Spontaneous (non-evoked) behaviors of mice have increasingly become adopted as translatable measures of pain.   Automated home cage analysis allows mice to be assessed in their home environment and throughout a 24-hour cycle, reducing variability and allowing assessments during their normal circadian period of activity, night. In this session, attendees will learn about the variety of commercially available automated home cage analysis systems and how to troubleshoot their implementation, as well as approaches to data analysis.
