The effect of cage shelf on the behaviour of male C57BL/6 and BALB/c mice in the elevated plus maze test.

The effect of environmental enrichment in the form of a cage shelf on the behaviour of male C57BL/6 and BALB/c mice was compared. Male C57BL/6 and BALB/c mice were randomly allocated into 12 cages per strain. The mice were kept in control conditions or exposed to a cage shelf for two, four, six or eight weeks, and thereafter assessed with the elevated plus… CONTINUE READING
