Measuring Anxiety-like Behavior in Crayfish by Using a Sub Aquatic Dark-light Plus Maze
Authors:  Pascal Fossat, Julien Bacqué-Cazenave, Jean-Paul Delbecque and Daniel Cattaert, date: 02/05/2015, view: 10638, Q&A: 0
Crayfish are omnivorous freshwater arthropods that naturally explore their environment during day and night, but also frequently hide under a shelter or in a hole in case of danger. They may be submitted to various stressors, including predation, ...
