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.
