Animal Behaviour Workshop
28 Aug 2013 to 29 Aug 2013
Institute of Bioscience, UPM Serdang
Organized by: 

Behaviour is the range of actions and man-nerisms made by an organism in conjunction with their environment. It is the response of the organism to various stimuli or inputs whether internal or external, conscious or unconscious, overt or covert and voluntary and involuntary. Behaviour is one of the most important properties of animal life and plays a critical role in biological adaptations.

The comparative study of behaviour over a wide range of species can provide insights into influences affecting human behaviour. Recent work in animal behaviour has demonstrated an influence of behaviour and social organization on physiological and cel-lular processes. Variations in social environ-ment can inhibit or stimulate ovulation, pro-duce menstrual synchron and induce mis-carriages. Other animal studies show that the quality of the social and behavioural en-vironment have a direct effect on immune system functioning. Research on animals has also developed many of the important concepts relating to coping with stress. A wide range of behavioural testing paradigms have been developed. 

The objective of this workshop is to disseminate information on the common testing methods and as well as the natural condition of rodent behavior, its development, response and welfare. This workshop also includes practical sessions, which will highlight on three behavioral de-termination equipment; Rotarod, Morris Wa-ter Maze, and Y– Maze as well as the force swim test.


The workshop is targeted for young scientists, researchers, and students currently conducting or wishes to conduct animal behaviour studies. Lectures are open by the workshop however is limited to 40 participants.
