The key goal in biomedical research is a better understanding of disease aetiologies, which ideally results in strategies and recommendations for the prevention of diseases before they arise, and in the development of effective therapies. However, many concerns have been expressed about the reproducibility and the translational validity of preclinical research in animal models to inform clinical trials in humans. It has been proposed that improving internal, external and construct validity of animal studies will lead to improved translatability. Automated behaviour monitoring in the animal's home cage, which allows for longitudinal assessment of individual trajectories over sufficiently long intervals for (chronic) drug treatment or phenotype progression, is a promising solution to these problems.
