Behavioral Neuroscience

Behavioral neuroscience is critical for the understanding of the impact of cognitive biological functions on behavior. Through reliability and accuracy, our behavioral neuroscience products help researchers to rely on results in animal studies.

Types of Behavioral Testing Equipment

Research into animal behavior offers insight by using behavioral equipment.
Behavioral equipment spans a variety of fields and includes:

  1. Operant testing systems
  2. Mazes
  3. Conditioned taste aversion tests
  4. Social interactions
  5. Open-field tests
  6. Social activity
  7. Conditioned behavior tests

Data Accuracy comes with Simple, Customizable Behavioral Neuroscience Equipment

As scientists seek answers to neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, clinical depression, drug and alcohol abuse, and others, it is critical to decide using reliable data. Using accurate, reliable animal models will lead us to a better understanding of the underlying biological conditions of these disorders. Supporting the biomedical researchers’ need to deliver real-world benefits in the lives of humans will help us minimize the devastating impact these neurological disorders have on society.

Unlock Discoveries with Amuza as Your Research Partner

We’re proud of our research partners! Check out this publication from Dr. Andrea Benucci, using a novel mouse behavioral learning platform that supports the need for reproducible behavioral measurements that can be performed quickly and accurately.

Previously training a mouse under head-fixation took me about 15 hours! Now with the platform, we have cut training time down to an hour and a half.
