These are a series of educational tools (video footage) coupled with quizzes for interactive teaching. They show marmosets within a research facility used in Parkinson's research. The video takes students through the disease, the reason why marmosets are used and considers the welfare and ethical issues surrounding their use.
These are currently available to BPS, NC3R and King's College London. The standalone video should become publicly available via the BPS research animals curriculum page but we are awaiting approval from KCL branding/legal.
