Mouse Watch

Producer: British Pharmacological Society

This program is designed to train students to recognise different aspects of normal and drug induced mouse appearance, and to become consistent and reliable in their scoring of mouse behaviours. Students can see standard behaviours (e.g. walk, groom, stretch, lick etc.) and can then obtain a sequence of behaviours which can be scored using either the inbuilt scoring system or any available scoring system familiar to them. The sequence of behaviour can be repeated with the same behaviours in a different order to investigate reproducibility and standardisation of observational skills. Scored behaviour can be compared with actual behaviours so observational skills can be improved.
