Light Dark Box
In the Light Dark Box (LDB) test, mice are introduced into the dark compartment of the box. After a short delay, motorized doors provide the mice access to an identically sized, but brightly lit compartment of the box. The LDB was used for the characterization of commonly used inbred strains by our scientists (Loos et al. 2009), as well as numerous disease models.
Mice are introduced into the dark compartment and a motorized door provides access to the brightly lit compartment.
