Animal Sciences Research and Education Center (ASREC)
USDA Livestock Behavior Research Unit Lab
Goals of this facility are to identify how animals perceive and respond to their environment and to find ways to minimize stress. The building has non-slip flooring with post holes every eight feet so that many different mazes and pen arrangements can be set up. This versatile facility is available for cognitive research by both USDA-ARS scientists and Purdue faculty.
