Changes in neurological function may be produced by metabolic disease, neural injury, epigenetic causes, antibiotic history or exposure to toxins or treatments. Persistence and scientific rigor are a pre-requisite in this field where relevant patterns must be discerned from small signals. Metabolic assays and ethographic profiling of behavior are key methods when a high-definition, in-vivo record is required to evaluate efficacy in pharmaceutical safety, neurological or physiological investigations.
Important System Considerations
Second by second quantification of activity
Automated monitoring of food and water uptake amounts and event frequency
Differentiate between food uptake and food stashing
Differentiate between large ingested meals from micro meals
Interchangeable instrumentation between mouse and rat cages
