The Small Animal Behavior Core (SABC) at Augusta University is a state-of-the art
facility designed to serve as a time-efficient and cost-effective service for researchers
in need of behavioral analyses in small animals (specifically, mice and rats). The
Core provides expertise in all aspects related to the design and implementation of
behavioral experiments as well as data analysis and interpretation. The core is fully
equipped to accommodate a full battery of behavioral tests relevant to learning and
memory, sensory gating, place/fear conditioning, motor function, nociception, and
anxiety-related behaviors, etc. We ask that whenever possible, all clients acknowledge
the Small Animal Behavior Core in published manuscripts.
The Small Animal Behavior Core Laboratory is located in the Dugas building in rooms BG 1084 and 1086. The hours of operation are from 8.30 am to 5:00 pm.
