Running Wheel Activity

Mice housed in home-cages equipped with a running wheel will voluntarily start to run in it. Voluntary wheel running is routinely used to assess the general health of mice, physical performance and relevant model exercise training regimes. This setup enables the discrimination of pharmacological efficacy of novel compounds on activity, endurance and circadian rhythms in rodents. Rotations are detected at high temporal resolution and subsequently processed and analysed with the AHCODA software.

Most commonly used in combination with:

  • Assessment of circadian rhythms
  • Assessment of motor and skeletal muscle function
