Facilities

Tutt Science Center Room 307: Behavioral Neurotoxicology Lab

The Behavioral Neurotoxicology Lab is a wet lab area equipped with six workbenches and five PC workstations. Students may work in this area with neuroanatomy slides, software, texts, as well as with plastinated brains and wet-brain sections. The laboratory is outfitted with automated equipment designed for the assessment of cognitive functioning in rodents. The lab is also a fully equipped "Smart" classroom (data projector, whiteboards, VCR/DVD player, audio system) used most often for courses associated with the study of neuropharmacology.

The Behavioral Neurotoxicology Lab also an adjoining room with four testing chambers for conducting reseearch on rats.
