Welcome to the UCLA Behavior Core website.

We are a multidisciplinary Core located in the Psychology Department at UCLA.  Our goal is to provide facilities and assistance to the research community at UCLA as well as to outside researchers.  The Core provides expertise in the design, implementation, and analysis of behavioral experiments in mice and rats. We also provide a full-service option, where our staff can perform the behavioral testing portion of the research and deliver the results to the requestor. This site is designed to provide information for potential users of the Core.

Thank you and enjoy your visit to our site.  Please feel free to email comments or questions.  See the Contacts page for more information.

The UCLA Behavioral Testing Core Facility has expanded our services!  We now offer BTC-staff performed experiments in addition to training and supervision of lab members.  We can now also assist clients outside the university with experiments.  See the Behavioral Tasks and Rates pages for more details.
