Cognition is an umbrella term for all conscious and subconscious mental processes that help us interact and cope with the external world. Cognitive processes include for example learning and memory, reasoning, planning, decision making, and many others.
With TSE Systems technology, cognitive performance can now be assessed within the home cage environment using a fully automated Operant Wall that can be equipped with various stimulus, response and reward options. No experimenter interference, no stress, long-term performance monitoring – rendering the conventional Skinner Box obsolete. We bring the experiment to the animal!
For out-of-home-cage cognitive testing, we recommend the MultiConditioning System – a fully automated multi-talent that accommodates nine conditioning paradigms within one system – unique on today’s market – or the IntelliCage by NewBehavior for cognitive screening of group housed animals.
