Animal awake self-administration system
Self-administration experiment (SA) is a common method in behavioral pharmacology research. It uses the positive reinforcement effect of certain drugs to make animals establish a connection between behavior and reward through certain conditional control, thereby simulating human beings. Some cases of drug abuse.
Skinner box is a typical instrument created by B.F. Skinner in the 1930s and designed to study operant conditioning, so it is also called operant conditioning test box. It is not only used to study the behavior of animals, but is widely used in the research of brain and behavioral science, such as stimulating or injuring certain parts of the brain, the effect of the use of certain drugs on animal behavior, and so on.
CPP Conditioned Place Preference Video Analysis System
The CPP Conditioned Place Preference (CPP) test is a classic experimental model for evaluating drug-psychotic dependence, and it is also an effective tool widely used to find anti-drug-seeking behaviors. In this experiment, experimental animals (rats, mice) were placed in the white observation area of the conditioned place preference box, and a psychotropic drug (such as morphine) was administered, and then the experimental animals were observed in the black area and white area of the conditioned place preference box. There are small gates between the white area, the black area and the gray area for animals to shuttle freely. Each time the animals are in the dosing area, they will have a positional preference for the black and white areas under the effect of the drug's rewarding effect, and the degree of which is related to the mental dependence of the drug.
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.
Multifunctional cough and asthma inducer
The multi-functional cough and asthma inducer converts liquid drugs or inhalation anesthetics into mist aerosols and enters the animal's body through the animal's respiratory system under the premise of timing, quantification, and concentration and maintaining the original properties of the substance. , so that small animals have symptoms such as asthma, cough, anesthesia, etc., in order to study the prevention and treatment of such symptoms or the use of instruments for such symptoms. The instrument is a multi-purpose experimental instrument. In addition to the pharmacological cough and asthma induction experiments, it can also be used for small animals anesthesia, poisoning and drug efficacy detection of drug spray forms and to simulate high humidity environments. An instrument for both teaching and research.
