The overarching aim of the Laboratory of Behavioral Methods is to provide high-quality behavioral screening and testing services for Nencki Institute as well as other scientists and companies. The laboratory is equipped with a broad spectrum of behavioral tests - sensory and motor abilities, emotional level, learning and memory, social interactions, and complex cognitive tasks. Also, we employ automatic, computerized tests for non-invasive testing of animal cohorts (IntelliCages, Eco-HAB). The Laboratory offers comprehensive user support - from planning experiments and manufacturing equipment through execution, advanced statistical data analysis, and manuscript preparation.
