Fear conditioning system

The ANY-maze controlled Fear Conditioning system automates the two most common fear conditioning paradigms: Contextual Fear Conditioning and Acoustically-Cued Fear Conditioning.

ANY-maze controls the shocker and the sound generator and automatically detects periods when the animal freezes, reporting information such as: Total freezing time, number of freezing episodes, duration of freeing episodes and latency times between stimuli and freezing events.

  • USB camera

  • Shocker
  • Animal enclosure with electrified grid floor
  • Sound-attenuating chamber with light and fan
  • Context kit (to alter chamber’s colour and texture)
  • Visible and infrared lights – works in total darkness

The Applications section contains lots of details about using ANY-maze to automate Fear conditioning tests.
