Studying Sociability & Social Interaction in Animal Models

Sociability is the act by which two or more individuals interact with one another or as a group. Together, indvidiuals have an opportunity to speak and express emotions.  In rodents, sociability is studied to understand social interaction.

Social behavior can be modeled in rodents and other species as a means to understand how genetic or physioloigcal changes can affect social interaction.
