The Real-Time Place Preference Chamber is a variant of the conditioned place preference chamber which is a paradigm widely used to explore the reinforcing effects of natural and pharmacological stimuli, including drugs of addiction.
Mice were tested in a two-chamber cage without additional contextual cues. Mice were gently put into the middle of the cage at the beginning of the test. Mice will receive laser stimulation when entering one side of the chamber randomly assigned at the beginning of the experiment.
Mazeengineers offer the Real-Time Place Preference Chamber.
The T maze is an enclosed apparatus in the form of a T placed horizontally, similar to the Y maze. Animals usually start from the base (long arm) of the T and allowed to choose one of the goal arms. The test relies on either spontaneous alternation or rewarded alternation(1). See the video for how to grade this maze. Optional food wells, doors, and return to start arms can be added to your order a-la-carte. Non-reflective options are made in the interior of the maze on request.
The MCAO Monofilament Sutures are made of silicone-wrapped nylon thread, to ensure that the suture occlusion can easily enter the common carotid artery from the external carotid artery, and finally enter the MCA branch of the internal carotid artery without piercing the inner wall of the vessel and changing the original direction of the vessel. It can also ensure a higher success rate of modeling meanwhile achieving a more realistic modeling effect.

The SCI device is constructed using a steel impounder inserted into a Teflon base. The impounder is attached to the end of the hollow tube by a horizontal pin to guide the weight and to prevent it from bouncing on impact. The weight is made of Teflon coated stainless steel and is supported by a removable pin which is also used to release the weight. Rod magnet is used for retrieval of the weight after the injury.
