Hardware-Software Complex for the Study of Complex Goal-Directed Behavior of Animals

P. A. Gorbokonenko, E. Ph. Pevtsov
Price: 50 руб.
 Researchers of P. K. Anokhin Research Institute of Normal Physiology (laboratory of motivations physiology) developed an experimental apparatus to study complex goal-directed behavior of test rats. The complex goal-oriented test bench is aimed to study
trained white rats during the process of satisfaction one of their basic physiological needs — the thirst. The work performed allowed to exclude the influence of human factors, to automate experimental studies, to increase productivity and accuracy of measurements.
Keywords: drinking behavior of rats, electronic modu les, algorithms and programs for
research in physiology.
