The social interaction test used was based on the social approach avoidance test previously described by Berton et al. (2006). In the experimental procedure, each animal was placed in the center of a square arena. Animals are allowed to fully explore the arena twice, under two different experimental sessions. In the first (“object” session), an empty perforated plexiglass cage is placed in the middle of one wall of the arena. In the second session (“social” session), an unfamiliar rodent is introduced into the cage as a social stimulus.

Mazeengineers offers the social interaction test for both mice and rats. Custom coloring and customization available upon request.
