Behavioral Testing Services

Stroke is the leading cause of disability in adults. Stroke is often accompanied by motor impairment, and some stroke survivors even suffer from cognitive impairment and emotional problems. Therefore, behavioral tests to determine the status of stroke model animals and post-stroke recovery model animals are essential for us to explore the pathological process of stroke and develop treatments for stroke. Therefore, Ace Neuroscience offers comprehensive services and complete testing methodologies for behavioral testing of stroke. We have comprehensive testing facilities, complete testing protocols, and professional scientists to ensure the scientific accuracy of the tests. In addition, stroke is a typical disease of old age, and most of the current studies use young animals as models, which cannot fully simulate the basic state of stroke. Therefore, we overcome this problem by providing tests that are all based on old animals and can be specified on demand for young animals.

Post-Stroke Sensorimotor Function Testing Services

Post-Stroke Sensorimotor Function Testing Services

There is no clear consensus on the testing of sensorimotor function in post-stroke animals. We offer all test methods to match your test protocol and study purpose. For the detection of long-term deficits in striatal and cortical damage, the Montoya step method, the single particle arrival method, the foot defect method, the cylinder, and the tape test are available.

Post-Stroke Motor Function Testing Services

Post-Stroke Motor Function Testing Services

Given the prevalence of motor deficits in post-stroke survivors, it is crucial to find reasonable and effective methods to restore their motor function. We can examine the results of kinematic analysis of model animals by treadmill, Rotarod, spaghetti carrying and ladder steps, and other testing methods.

Post-Stroke Cognition & Mood Testing Services

Post-Stroke Cognition and Mood Testing Services

The common tests used to evaluate cognition in animals are not fully applicable to the detection of stroke pathological processes. For example, the Morris water maze mainly measures hippocampal function, and damage to the hippocampus is rare during human stroke, so we effectively improve the Morris water maze test to make it more compatible with the actual situation of stroke. In addition, rodent cognition is much less lateralized than that of humans, therefore, we build bilateral impairment models to better simulate the actual situation of human stroke. We also improve and refine the test protocols for emotional aspects based on the common test methods to make them more consistent with the pathology of stroke in order to clarify the cognitive situation and emotional impairment after stroke.

Large Animal Behavior Testing Services

Large Animal Behavior Testing Services

Given ethical and moral requirements and cost control, large animals are generally not used for experiments in the early stages of stroke-related research. However, some large animals can more accurately and scientifically mimic human stroke. Therefore, Ace Neuroscience offers a refined protocol for post-stroke large animal behavioral testing in order to obtain more and more accurate data with a minimum number of animals.

Because rodents possess a vascular system similar to that of humans, a rich behavioral reserve, and many well-described behavioral outcome measures, rodents are often used in stroke studies to assess motor, cognitive and emotional behaviors similar to those of humans. Therefore, our services are also primarily focused on rodents, while providing behavioral testing services for other animals. If you would like to learn more about our services, please feel free to contact us.

All of our services are intended for preclinical research use only and cannot be used to diagnose, treat or manage patients.
