Fine Motor Kinematics in In Vivo Pharmacology
Impairment of fine motor skills is used as an early diagnosis marker in muscular degenerative and neurodegenerative diseases. Scientists at Charles River use a novel automated and high-precision system, the MotoRater, to successfully analyze early changes in muscular or neuronal function in disease models to support the development of therapeutics that reverse or slow progressive degeneration and to test compounds that can cause fine motor impairment as a side effect.
