White noise generator for Mouse behavior. A good idea?


#1

I know some labs use a white noise generator to create a background level of noise so the animals don’t get startled by any abrupt ambient noises. What do you think? Good idea, bad idea? I started to use one and it seems the mice are more relaxed and less bothered by sounds of doors or footsteps from the surrounding Lab.

Hi,
Do you still use white noise with your mice ? I’m actually using it but I was wondering if the level is not too high. What was the level of white noise you used ?

Hi. I do use it. I found a level that blocked out ambient noise but wasn’t too loud. I don’t have a set quantified value but I keep it the same all the time.
