Their well-developed chemical communication systems make rodents popular in research that aims to understand the connections between genes, hormones and behaviour. Structural identification of several pheromones in mice, rats and hamsters now makes it feasible to employ their synthetic analogues in probing olfactory neurons and in the study of various pheromone–protein interactions in intimate detail.
