Welcome to the Animal Metabolism & Behavior Core (AMBC), located in the Comparative Biology Core. We provide investigators at Pennington Biomedical Research Center and at LSU’s main campus, as well as any investigators outside of the LSU system access to our services.
The goal of the Animal Metabolism and Behavior Core is to provide state of the art metabolic and behavioral equipment for investigators at Pennington and other institutions. The core facility has equipment to perform a comprehensive battery of behavioral tests to thoroughly phenotype overall motor and sensory function of rats and mice as well as to phenotype specific behaviors that are of interest to the investigators. We also have state-of-the-art metabolic equipment with the capability of testing indirect calorimetry in the home cage as well as body composition with NMR.
Investigators interested in using the Core should contact a staff member for information and training.
