Brown Institute for Brain Science

This is the first of its kind fully-automated high-throughput rodent behavioral testing facility. This facility is unique in that it integrates high-level computer vision, computer learning, and custom built hardware solutions with behavioral testing to automate tracking, cataloging, and analysis of both home cage behavior and standard
rodent testing paradigms.

Goals of the Core

Provide a key resource for basic and translational scientists to gain new and important insights into disease models that can ultimately be translated from bench-to-bedside.

To provide a state-of-the-art facility where academic, medical, and industry scientists can generate and characterize preclinical models of disorders, test novel pharmacological and genetic rescue strategies in rodent models, and conduct basic scientific research.
