TWO-CHOICE VISUAL DISCRIMINATION REVERSAL FOR RATS
Model 89540-R

Two-choice Visual Discrimination Reversal for Rats

DESCRIPTION

The task involves learning that one of two shapes displayed simultaneously on the screen is correct. Touching the correct stimuli (S+) will be rewarded with food. Touching the incorrect stimuli (S-) will be punished with a timeout. Once the task has been learned, the stimuli are reversed so that the S+ stimuli now becomes the S- stimuli and vice versa. This reversal learning requires inhibition of prepotent responses and is known to be dependant on the prefrontal cortex.
