We will investigate 1) physical environment (the cage design and structures in the cage), 2) nutritional management (diet and adding food), and 3) health management (procedure and items of the medical examination; method of anesthesia and treatment). The second aim of our project is to provide marmosets or biological samples to the researchers in the Brain/MINDS project to promote the project. The third aim of our project is to teach rearing and handling know-how to researchers and care-takers.
