The virtual reality environment can be created as per the need of the experiment. In the Simian version multiple environments can be configured.
The Morris Water Maze (MWM) is a widely used behavioral task developed by Richard G. Morris in the year 1981 as a response to the Radial Arm Maze (RAM). As opposed to the Radial Arm Maze, the Morris Water Maze doesn’t provide the subject with a choice point. Further, the task utilizes the fear of drowning to motivate the subject to learn the location of the escape platform quickly. The navigational task is effective in the assessment of spatial learning, and over the course of years has seen modifications and adaptations such as the Water T-Maze, the Water Y-Maze, and the Water RAM.
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.
