Abstract

Microtus ochrogaster, a strictly monogamous rodent, is the animal model of choice for studying the neurological, genetic, evolutionary and molecular bases of social behaviour. This model is increasingly being used in basic and translational research on the biology of the "social brain", i.e. the...

Although human subjects are widely used to study sleep and sleep disorders, animals have been invaluable in developing our understanding of the physiology of sleep and underlying mechanisms of sleep disorders. Environmental stimuli are likely to modify sleep in both animals and people, suggesting...

Abstract

Current husbandry and care guidelines for laboratory animals recommend social housing for nonhuman primates and all other social species. However, not all individuals of a social species are compatible, which can lead to psychosocial stress on certain members. Because stress affects immune...
