Conditioned place preference (zebrafish)

There are two scripts for the Conditioned Place Preference for adult zebrafish: a baseline/probe script and a drug treatment script.

There are two assets you will use. "zones_2w.bmp" will 'divide' your testing tank in two separate target zones where your stimuli will be presented. "arenas_2l.bmp" will 'divide' the testing tank into two arenas: one for each individual fish.

See the protocol page, Conditioned place preference (CPP) (zebrafish) for more details on the assay.



You will need to upload the appropriate asset into the Asset directory on your Zantiks Control Console and ensure the correct asset name is in the LOAD(DETECTORS,"name_of_asset") and the LOAD(ARENAS,"name_of_asset") commands in the script.

  1. zones_2w.bmp
  2. arenas_2l.bmp

Sprite images

When using sprite images for your stimuli, you will also need to upload them into the Assets directory and include them in the script. The following images are a checked pattern vs a grey colour.

  1. check640X640.bmp
  2. grey128X128.bmp
