Animal Care Facility

In the Animal Care Facility (UZA 1), shared by the Departments of Cognitive and Behavioural Biology, we set a high value on species adequate housing and care. The animals are kept in social groups and large, enriched enclosures, depending on the species’ social structure and behavioural repertoire. In our rodent facility, the animals are habituated to human handling to avoid stress during experimental manipulations as well as maintenance or veterinary treatments.
