We ensure top quality and actuality by close cooperation with leading edge scientist and engineers. NewBehavior AG defines itself through our close collaboration with scientists and engineers.
This laboratory has been leading in developing standardized behavioral analyses of now more than 70 mutant and inbred mouse strains.
- It has been instrumental in founding the International Behavioral and Neural Genetics Society (IBANGS), has co-organized courses on transgenic mouse behavior at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and on behalf of the European Molecular Biology Organization EMBO.
- Another focus is ecological brain research. This has led to the development of outdoor learning devices for free-living mouse populations, and to the development of micro-GPS systems for tracking homing paths of pigeons.
- Further fields of the laboratory include developmental toxicology, ecotoxicology and comparative neuroanatomy.
This laboratory runs a battery of IntelliCages which operates day and night, 24/7. Besides NewBehavior's own animal lab this team provides useful information about IntelliCages intensely used.
Prof. Schwab is a much-respected and honored neuroscientist specializing in central nervous system repair and regeneration mechanisms. To this end, it is vital for his research to be able to analyze kinematic behavior of injured animal models as well as observe the effects of training regimes. Under his tutelage, the foundations of TSE Systems´ MotoRater kinematic analysis system have been developed.
