Cognitive testing in the home cage
Minimal human interference
Increased habituation and learning speed
Long-term self-motivated learning
Circadian screening of learning abilities
Integration into a fully equipped PhenoMaster setup possible
Customized test protocols with the powerful Operant Behavior software
Reduced anxiety and stress level
The TSE PhenoMaster system features the only integrated operant testing platform available on the market – the Operant Wall. Perform fully automated operant conditioning experiments without user interference – no stress for the animal that could interfere with learning performance and influence data output. The homecage setup allows long-term experiments with more trials per animal and facilitates circadian analysis of learning abilities. It also reduces the experimenter workload and saves laboratory space.
Operant Walls are available for rats and mice. They are configured from a variety of hardware modules such as levers, nose poke units, pellet, or liquid dispensers to meet the requirements of individual operant tasks. Whether you want to study motivation, attention, impulsivity, or run simple learning tasks – the system offers nearly unlimited flexibility in creating your Operant Conditioning experiments. The easy-to-use graphical user interface allows easy creation of custom protocols without the need for a programming background.
