Mirror bite test (zebrafish)

There is one script for the Mirror bite test for adult zebrafish.

There are two assets you will use. "mirror_arenas.bmp" will 'divide' the testing tank into two testing arenas: one for each individual fish. "mirror_zones.bmp" will 'divide' each arena into six separate target zones: split evenly lengthwise; with three equal zones nearest the mirror and three below.

See the protocol page, Mirror biting test (zebrafish) for more details on the assay.



You will need to upload the 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") command in the script.
