1a. Behavioral assays (motor and sensory functions)

a. Motor functions
– Activity monitoring (video analysis (Ethovision)
or photobeam-based analysis (TruScan)
– Gait analysis (Catwalk)
– Rotarod
– Beam walking
– Grid hanging and grip strenght
– Swimming

b. Sensory functions
– Acoustic startle and prepulse inhibition
– Hot plate test for pain threshold
– Von Frey filaments for tactile sensitivity
– Olfactory discrimination
– Visual functions (see electrophysiology)
