The conditioned place preference chamber is a paradigm widely used to explore the reinforcing effects of natural and pharmacological stimuli, including drugs of addiction. Combinations of floor and wall cues are available
In this variant, subjects are allowed to freely move between a compartment in which they were conditioned with either drug cues or neutral cues. The wall cues a (comes with a maze) provide visual reinforcement
This dual-chamber place preference allows for biased and unbiased conditioned place preference testing. A removable door (not shown) allows isolation into one compartment of the apparatus of the animal. Preference testing is then done by removing the door to allow the mouse to freely explore between the two compartments (as seen in the image)
Visual pattern inserts are sandwiched between the clear interior layer and the outer grey layer. These visual pattern inserts do not interact with the mouse directly, preserving the life of the apparatus.
OptionalStanding Inserts (visualized) is for spatial place preference procedures. Please request separately
Oxygen Flowmeter is used to accurately control the gas flow rate. The flowmeter mounting plate and fixing screws can be added to the RWD large and small animal anesthesia machine fixed bracket to control the air source input flow rate of the RWD anesthesia machine.
And with the international standard ISO connector, the lower end is connected with an 8mm PVC pipe or silicone tube for gas source input, and the upper end is connected to the evaporator through a short section of 6mm silicone tube.
In addition, the oxygen flow meter and the laughing gas flow meter can also be used in parallel. After the oxygen and the laughing gas are mixed, they are mixed with isoflurane or sevoflurane through the evaporator to output mixed anesthetic gas to achieve better anesthesia and analgesia.
