Object-context Recognition Memory Test for Mice
Authors:  Sofia Kanatsou and Harm Krugers, date: 09/05/2016, view: 8243, Q&A: 0
The object in-context (OIC) task is a variant of the widely used object recognition (OR) task (Dix and Aggleton, 1999). The OIC task makes use of the fact that rodents have a natural tendency to explore novel environments and objects. The ...
