TGR THERMAL GRADIENT RING In recent years the cellular and molecular mechanisms of temperature sensing and thermoregulation are subject of intensive research. Data Collection and Management To overcome limitations evidenced in other tests, we have designed a novel circular thermal gradient assay, for thermal preference phenotyping, based on the paper “Comprehensive thermal Preference Phenotyping in Mice using a Novel Automated Circular Gradient Assay”, published by University Erlangen-Nuernberg (see Bibliography, method paper). l Preference Temperature time course ± SD Rationale of the Test...
