Project Z02

Animal Motor Circuits Core Facility

The Animal Motor Core Facility will serve as an expert platform for the characterisation and quantification of animal motor and cognitive behaviour, as well as the assessment of the underlying neuronal mechanisms. Z02 will provide (i) an extensive standardised battery of behavioural tests probing motor functions in rodents, and (ii) systems neuroscience tools, including optogenetics and calcium imaging, and (iii) standardised preprocessing and data analysis. The data will be provided access to a shared database via the utilities provided by INF.hange of expertise between and across projects of the different research areas and will ensure adherence to good scientific practice and encourage open data access.
