Systems Club II – Mouse Behavioral Tracking

Methods for deriving Resilience against stress in mice from long term observations

July 29, 2022 @ 2:00 pm 7:00 pm

When individuals in major psychological or physical stressful situations are able to maintain their mental health or restore it quickly after a short period of experiencing stress-related symptoms, this is referred to as resilience. The classification of mice into resilient and susceptible animals based on tests such as chronic social defeat test, is a common approach in resilience research. However, this classification based on short-term observation has recently been viewed increasingly critically and its transferability to the definition of resilience in humans has at least been questioned. But which methods can give us information about the long-term behavior of mice and is this really helpful for determining the resilience status of a mouse?

In our Systems Clubs we want to encourage you, to join the discussion. Bring your own opinions and if you think it is helpful, feel free to bring a short presentation giving a new impulse on the topic at hand. This Systems Club is particularly aimed to discover different methods for mouse behavioral tracking and to discuss them together as well as how to define resilience in general.

  • The IntelliCage System and Data Analysis using IntelliPy (Nicolas Ruffini)
