Cognition Model

We have the capabilities to conduct preclinical studies around the cognition model

What is the Cognition Model?

A cognitive model is an estimation of animal cognitive processes for the purposes of comprehension and prediction of factors.

Transpharmation has a vast understanding in preclinical cognition research obtained through decades of experience running disease area portfolios for Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and Schizophrenia within GlaxoSmithKline. Most importantly, our highly skilled technical staff appreciate the subtleties involved in evaluating rodent cognitive processes, ensuring all our assays are highly robust and reproducible, ensuring a respectable study is carried out.

We focus on delivering carefully selected cognition models which are disease-relevant thereby offering the option to evaluate NCEs against pharmacologically induced cognition impairments, (e.g scopolamine) or natural impairments, (age, test parametric manipulation) across multiple disease areas.

Cognition models we offer:

  • Novel object recognition
  • temporal deficit
  • pharmacological deficit, (scopolamine, sub-chronic PCP)
  • Delayed-non-match to position
  • Reversal learning
  • Attentional set shifting
