Touch screen cages

Touch screen operant cages (rat / mouse) are suitable for measuring diverse cognitive functions in rodents with high translational value. The cognitive functions that can be measured comprise conditioned approach/avoidance, learning behaviour of discrimination and extinction, behavioural and cognitive flexibility, goal-oriented behaviour, working and spatial memory, impulsiveness, and self-administration of drugs. These tasks can be very useful for pharmaceutical companies and food industries.

Touch Screen CagesFor whom?

The touch screen operant cages are of interest to researchers or companies that aim to understand the mechanisms of cognitive functions, mediated or not by specific diets, drugs, or genetic factors.

This facility is located at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour.
