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.
Cardiovascular surgery kits focus on the heart and blood vessels. Cardiac surgery kit is mainly used to treat the complexities of ischemic heart diseases, congenital heart diseases, valvular heart diseases, endocarditis, rheumatic heart diseases, and atherosclerosis.
The Weight Drop TBI apparatus generally consists of two main parts: the U-shaped Plexiglas box and a collection sponge.
The typical weight drop mTBI equipment consists of a U-shaped Plexiglas stand, a plastic guide tube, brass weights, clamp stand, fishing line, and a collection sponge. The lightly anesthetized rodent is placed supine on a scored tin foil with its head directly in the pathway of the falling weight.
ConductScience offers the Weight Drop TBI apparatus.
The AutoSomTM system is an automated sleep-deprivation system specially designed to conduct sleep-related research in rodents. The system enables non-invasive, fully automated, and highly-regulated monitoring of rodent’s sleep/wake activity.
The device consists of a floor-sensor board that detects the vibrations when the mouse moves in its home-cage. A motor is fixed under the floor-sensor board that turns the rotating bar to keep the animal awake.
The system operates four units interfacing one computer via USB cable. The screenshots of the system using a vibration signal that is used to assess active or inactive (‘sleep’), and an infrared array is utilized for the detection of location and locomotion of the animal.
