Evaluation of motor function is crucial for phenotyping of transgenic rodents as well as in assessing potential side-effects when testing investigational compounds. Many behavioral assays depend on locomotor activity and animal performance can be influenced by the changes in activity levels. Therefore it is important to know baseline effects of compounds (or genetic manipulation) on locomotion and related motor functions for proper interpretation of the results. PsychoGenics offers standard assays for evaluation of locomotor activity, muscle strength and coordination.
