AUTOSHAPING FOR RATS
Model 89544-R

Autoshaping for Rats

DESCRIPTION

The task measures a Pavlovian response to the screen. This is a very rapidly administered test of simple classical conditioning that is dependent on a reward system centered on the ventral striatum. White vertical rectangles are presented on either side of the reward tray. One side is always followed by delivery of food reward, the other never. Reward is independent of screen approach. Approaches to the screen are measured via an IR beam detector either side of the food tray.

 

REQUIRED ACCESSORIES
