SCURRY MOUSE MISSTEP WHEEL WITH FILTER LID
Model 80821FS

Scurry Mouse Misstep Wheel with Filter Lid

DESCRIPTION

This mouse activity wheel combines the features of the 80821S Miss-Step or MOSS style activity wheel with removable rungs and of the 80820FS Mouse Activity Wheel Chamber with Filter Lid.

The 80821S Scurry Mouse Activity Wheel is a variation on the standard voluntary running wheel Model 80820S where individual rungs may be removed to create a complex wheel or rung configuration. The complex wheel has been used to introduce the running wheel based Motor Skill Sequence (MOSS) in mice. This method has been used in the subchronic MPTP mouse model of Parkinson's disease. It has also been employed to display behavioural deficits of corpus callosum re- and demyelination in the cuprizone mouse mode of multiple sclerosis.  Use the in text links above for more information on filter lids and miss-step wheels.

Additional standard wheel - 80820RW  is included to facilitate quick changes from one style wheel to the other. 

Additional MOSS wheels are also available on request.
