Black and white box / light and dark box experimental system


The origin of animal behavior, psychopharmacology, and behavioral toxicology are studied using animal dark-avoidance properties (black box) and exploratory properties (white box). Rodents have an innate tendency to dislike brightly lit areas and to explore new environments spontaneously, making black-and-white boxes an easy-to-use test instrument that requires no prior training of the animals. Black-and-white box tests help predict the effects of anxiolytics or anxiolytics on behavior in mice or rats. Anxious animals have been shown to rapidly shift to the darker side and rarely leave the dark side compared to animals without the anxiety trait. Therefore, more time on the bright side means less anxiety. It is widely used in learning and memory, Alzheimer's disease, hippocampal/external hippocampal research, intelligence and aging, new drug development/screening/evaluation, pharmacology, toxicology, preventive medicine, neurobiology, animal psychology and behavioral biology, etc. The fields of scientific research and computer-aided teaching in the discipline have been widely recognized in the world, and it is the first-choice classic experiment for medical schools to conduct behavioral research, especially learning and memory research.

1. A variety of reliable animal recognition algorithms: traditional grayscale recognition, contour recognition, background recognition and multi-point recognition, which can well cope with various complex experimental backgrounds and accurately track the movement trajectory of the tested animal. For example, we can detect the number of times an animal approaches an object of interest through multi-point recognition (head);

2. It can flexibly design experimental areas of various shapes, such as circles, rectangles, irregular polygons, etc., so as to be able to test more animal behavior experiments. For example, we can design a hexagon and carry out a six-arm water maze experiment;

3. A set of software can carry out almost all behavioral experiments, including morris water maze, eight-arm maze, open field experiment, Y maze, elevated plus maze, etc.;

4. Support any segment to view the results statistically. For example, we carried out an experiment with a duration of 6 minutes, and we can select the data of the last 4 minutes as the statistical data;

5. Both manual testing and automatic testing are supported. If the user defines an automatic start (or end) area, when the animal enters the area during the experiment, it will automatically trigger the start (or end) of the experimental test behavior. For example, in the Morris water maze experiment, the analysis can be automatically stopped when the animal successfully gets on the platform for the first time;

6. There are many complex behaviors (such as grooming, standing, shaking) in animal behavior experiments that image recognition is not capable of. The software provides a manual event recording function. By defining the keys on the keyboard, we can accurately count these complex behaviors. come out.
