    [Abstract]

    Olfactory behavior is among the most fundamental animal behaviors both in the wild and in the laboratory. To elucidate the neural mechanisms underlying olfactory behavior, it is critical to measure neural responses to odorant concentration changes resembling those that animals actually sense during olfactory behavior. However, reproducing the

    Assessing Classical Olfactory Fear Conditioning by Behavioral Freezing in Mice
    Authors:  Jordan M. Ross and Max L. Fletcher, date: 09/20/2018, view: 3065, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Classical fear conditioning typically involves pairing a discrete cue with a foot shock. Quantifying behavioral freezing to the learned cue is a crucial assay for neuroscience studies focused on learning and memory. Many paradigms utilize discrete stimuli such as tones; however, given mice are odor-driven animals and the wide variety of odorants ...
