• colony observation Reproduction, fecundity.
• open field test Locomotor activity, exploratory, anxiety-related behavior. 10 min test.
• light-dark box Anxiety, avoidance behavior. 10 min test.
• behavior observation Wildness scoring.
• nociception assay Hot plate and pressure on tail.
• monitoring system Sleep patterns. Dark period, total, peak activity. Baseline and after sleep deprivation.
• body size and weight Body weight, body length, tail length.
• fat pad weights Gonadal fat pad weight.
