  • Description
  • Details

A readable and practical overview of all rat behavior as it has been studied in laboratory conditions.

Both seasoned and beginning investigators will be amazed at the range and complexity of rat behavior as described in the 43 chapters of this volume. The behavioral descriptions are closely tied to the laboratory methods from which they were derived, thus allowing investigators to exploit both the behavior and the methods for their own research. This book is aimed especially at neuroscientists who may not be familiar with rat behavior, but who wish to incorporate behavioral investigations into their own research. It will also serve as in indispensable reference for other neuroscientists, psychologists, pharmacologists, geneticists, molecular biologists, zoologists, and their students and trainees.
