PhenoCube® SmartCube provides an environment where disease models or treatments can be assessed over many days. Groups of mice are challenged in ways that allow the system to detect social, circadian, motor, and cognitive behaviors, hallmarks of most neuropsychiatric disorders. Complex computer vision and automation eliminate any subjectivity and together with proprietary data mining algorithms can detect subtle changes even early in the progression of a disease phenotype. The cognitive challenges presented in the environment can be employed to identify compounds with potential to treat cognitive impairment associated with disorders such as schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease, and ADHD.
