A study of the cleaning habits of mice 


Did you ever wonder why mice clean themselves? Do they want to look nice and impress the opposite sex? Is cleaning a reaction like scratching an itchy skin to help them feel better? 

Do mice learn how to clean themselves or is cleaning an instinct (genetically based behavior)?

Project description:
This project is a study on the cleaning habits of mice. We want to know if cleaning is a conscious - pre planned behavior or a genetically inherited instinctive behavior. You may also want to know if cleaning is stimulated by environmental conditions such as dirt or temperature.
