A range of behavioural studies of adult zebrafish and mice can be done in the Zantiks AD. Zebrafish larvae, Drosophila and Daphnia can be studied in the Zantiks MWP.
The 5-choice serial reaction time task (5-CSRTT) is a continuous performance test used to assess attentional processes and impulse control
The two choice discrimination task with mice is often used to study emotional and cognitive disabilities.
A form of Pavlovian conditioning that is used to investigate the rewarding effects associated with drugs of abuse
These paradigms are used to study behavioural flexibility
Paradigms used in the Y-maze include the spontaneous alternation test and the recognition memory test.
A circadian rhythm is any biological process that displays an endogenous, entrainable oscillation of about 24 hours
Subjects learn that certain aversive events are predicted by specific environmental stimuli
Startle response is often used with fish to analyse motor function.
Changes in acute motor responses of larval zebrafish are measured to study underlying roles certain internal states have on behaviour.
In addition to the protocols featured above, other protocols that can be conducted in the units include:
