Cognition is a psychological term that includes the processes of learning, memory, and attention, as well as perception, language, intelligence, and reasoning. Cognitive phenomena are essentially internal psychological processes which, from the experimental point of view, must be inferred from overt changes in an organism's behavior. Testing of cognitive functions in rodent disease models constitutes a substantial sector of behavioral neuroscience. It is most often needed in phenotyping genetically modified new rodent (usually mouse) lines or in preclinical testing of cognitive effects of new CNS drugs. Creative Biolabs offers a wide range of behavioral tests to assess cognitive functions in rodents. https://www.creative-biolabs.com/drug-discovery/therapeutics/rodent-behavioral-tests-for-cognition.htm .
