Behavioral testing in rodents is used to evaluate neurological traits and events, such as locomotor activity, depression-like behavior, socialization, memory, and many others. While behavior tests areare are indispensable part of neurological assessments, they also belong the group of the most challenging experimental setups. Researchers need to take many considerations into account in order to prevent unreproducible results and to decrease unnecessary labor. In this Article Collection, selected articles published in MethodsX were gathered to highlight the recent advancements in rodent behavioral testing all around the world and to assist scientific community in reaching reliable, reproducible, and validated methods.
