Examining Cocaine Conditioning Place Preference in Mice
Authors:  MaryElizabeth J. Simkevich, Rianne R. Campbell and André O. White, date: 04/20/2020, view: 2194, Q&A: 0
A key component of combating substance use disorders is understanding the neural mechanisms that support drug reward. Tasks such as self-administration assess the reinforcing properties of a drug using a learned behavior but require numerous ...

A Fluorescent Dye Method Suitable for Visualization of One or More Rat Whiskers
Visualization and tracking of the facial whiskers is critical to many studies of rodent behavior. High-speed videography is the most robust methodology for characterizing whisker kinematics, but whisker visualization is challenging due to the low ...

Dissociating Behavior and Spatial Working Memory Demands Using an H Maze
Authors:  Hannah S. Wirtshafter, Moqing Quan and Matthew A. Wilson, date: 03/05/2021, view: 1157, Q&A: 0

The development of mazes for animal experiments has allowed for the investigation of cognitive maps and place cells, spatial working memory, naturalistic navigation, perseverance, exploration, and choice and motivated behavior. However, many mazes,
