The wide range of tests for laboratory animal behavior after neurological injury or disease each have their benefits and detriments. The varied behavior an animal exhibits makes it difficult to decide which test to use. However, a fundamental instinct for the laboratory animal is to explore when placed in a new environment. A way to test exploratory behavior is in the open field. Here, we introduce a simple activity box without the use of video equipment to determine the exploratory movement of… CONTINUE READING
