Many behavioural tests in rodents are based on the premise that basal locomotor activity of the animals is similar between the tested groups. The measurement of basal home cage activity is therefore an essential parameter, that should be included in all studies which employ tests of anxiety or cognition. Currently available systems for the assessment of home cage locomotion are often complex and expensive. Here we describe and validate a novel, simple and cost-efficient apparatus for the… CONTINUE READING
