The core is composed of two laboratories: the Human Behavioral Phenotyping Laboratory and the Mouse Behavioral Phenotyping Laboratory . These facilities are available for all aspects of state-of-the-art measurement of mouse behavior and selected aspects of human behavior; training in behavioral measurement and consultation regarding the interface of rodent models of human behavioral condidtions with human studies.
