Psychiatric disorders affect approximately one quarter of people worldwide at some point in their lifetime. This chapter provides a step-by-step guide to conduct behavioral tests in adult mice for investigations of social behavior, without the need for specific equipment. This test should allow the identification of key abnormalities in social interactions that can be followed up by targeted, more complex, behavioral analysis aimed at identification of new biomarkers and potential drug targets.
