Parental care in mammals is often critical for survival and development of the offspring. The multiple behaviors that comprise parental care in rats and mice are controlled by a complex array of factors. This unit describes the components of parental care in rats and mice and the frequently used methods to assess the performance of these behaviors, a subject's preference for pup-related cues, as well as a subject's motivation to act parentally.
