Abstract

Comprehensive behavioral analyses of transgenic and knockout mice have successfully identified the functional roles of many genes in the brain. Over the past 10 years, strategies for mouse behavioral phenotyping have evolved to maximize the scope and replicability of findings from a cohort of mutant mice, minimize the interpretation of procedural artifacts, and provide robust translational tools to test hypotheses and develop treatments. This Primer addresses experimental design issues and offers examples of high-throughput batteries, learning and memory tasks, and anxiety-related tests.
