5-CHOICE CONTINUOUS PERFORMANCE TEST - 5C-CPT - FOR MICE
Model 89548

5-Choice Continuous Performance Test - 5C-CPT - for Mice

DESCRIPTION

Like the 5-choice serial reaction task, this task requires the rodent to respond to .a brief visual stimulus presented randomly in one of 5 locations. In addition some trials present visual stimuli in all five locations together and for these trials the subject must learn to withhold a response. This go/no-go task measures both attentional and inhibitory systems within a single task paradigm, enabling the assessment of vigilance.

This task was developed for the 5/9 choice chamber and adapted for the Bussey-Saksida touch screen.
