Circuits and Behavior Core

The CNR Circuits and Behavior Core is managed by Dr. Andrew Tarr. Please contact him for information about core services, access to the core, and for training and assistance with equipment use. 

Reserve equipment by signing up in the appropriate calendar.


  • Provide equipment, facilities, consultation, and technical expertise for carrying out behavioral experiments
  • Ensure that NINDS investigators have access to equipment and services necessary to assess behavioral phenotypes


The core provides expertise and equipment for many different behavioral assays. See list below.

* Any project involving animals must be approved by the Tufts University Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) before initiation. The Core Manager can provide assistance in preparing amendments or sections to include behavioral testing in animal protocols.
