General description

This concise review explains the differences between transgenic and knockout mice and their wild-type controls, while providing critical information about gene function and expression. Newly identified genes can provide insights into brain malfunctioning in disease states. It discusses how to generate a transgenic or knockout mouse, functions (open field, holeboard, rotarod, balance, grip, circadian activity, etc.), sensory abilities (olfaction, vision, hearing, taste, touch, nociception), reproductive behavior, social behavior, and emotional behavior.
