Lo que aprenderás

  • Learn responsible conduct of research in order to collect, analyze, and interpret behavioral data from mouse videos.
  • Critically evaluate the use of different behavioral tests in mice. Establish a methodological foundation in using behavioral tests in rodents.
  • Understand the mental health conditions obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression in humans and animals.
  • Understand the role of animal models in studying human psychiatric disorders by comparing and contrasting human and mouse behaviors.

Expand your biomedical research expertise by learning how to use mouse behaviors to study psychiatric disorders in humans. Enhance your knowledge of obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression in humans and animals, and the role of animal models in studying human psychiatric disorders by comparing and contrasting human and mouse behaviors.

Created by Professor Abel Bult-Ito at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, this certificate program helps you obtain the skills you need to succeed in the biomedical research field. Behavioral health, such as the treatment of psychiatric disorders and prevention of suicide, is still one of the biggest challenges in mental health and the field of behavioral neuroscience today and will continue to be a top priority for scientific research.

By the end of this online program, you’ll have learned responsible conduct of research, collected, analyzed, and interpreted behavioral data from mice, critically evaluated the use of different behavioral tests in mice, established a methodological foundation in using behavioral tests in rodents, and you’ll have obtained important behavioral neuroscience and neuropsychology tools, knowhow, and expertise.
