Neuro Research Services provides academic and industry researchers access to a comprehensive rodent neuro-phenotyping facility. Behavioural equipment, including video tracking software systems, enables the assessment of rodent motor function, memory, learning, addiction, anxiety, depression and nociception. This is complemented by neuro-histology and an advanced microscopy service that enables the full assessment of the central nervous system of genetically modified and drug-treated rodents. Access to expertise and equipment is available. A number of neurodegenerative and pain rodent models are available for proof-of-concept and preclinical assessment of potential new therapies. The facility engages leading neuroscientists and clinical consultants to provide expert advice and review of data. Projects are designed, managed, undertaken and reported under an established quality management system by experienced scientists.
