Welcome to Duke University’s Mouse Behavioral and Neuroendocrine Analysis Core Facility!

The study of mouse genetic and neuroendocrine contributions to behavior provides critical insights into neuropsychiatric illness and the underlying mechanisms of brain function.  The Mouse Behavioral and Neuroendocrine Analysis Core Facility is an intellectual and technical resource for the Duke Community and collaborators at other institutions.  In addition to state-of-the art equipment, we provide assistance with experimental design, data analysis and interpretation, and publication of results.

The Core Facility can provide in-depth testing in numerous behavioral domains, as well as some neuroendocrine analyses.  For a full listing of tests and equipment available in the Core Facility, click HERE.

Core personnel are available to assist with experimental design, training, scheduling of testing, data analysis, and interpretation of results.  For contact information, click HERE.

If you are a new user to The Mouse Behavioral and Neuroendocrine Core Facility, please send an email to our Director, Dr. William Wetsel (wetse001@mc.duke.edu or see contact information above) to arrange a meeting to discuss your project.

We look forward to working with you!
