45100 - Lickometer Vogel Test

 

The Ugo Basile Lickometer - Vogel Test is a versatile system that can function as a simple software-based lickometer or to run Drinking-Conflict experiments and assess the anxiolytic effect of drugs.

In the Drinking-Conflict Vogel paradigm an animal is exposed to a lickometer and the licking events are coupled to stimulus delivery system. The subject is in a motivationally conflicting situation, and it's licking behavior is affected by anxiety and anxiolytic drugs.

The Drinking Conflict Vogel test usually consists of three phases:

- Initial wait (triggered by the first licking event)

- Stimulus phase

- No-stimulus phase (no stimulus is associated to drinking)

For each phase of the experiment, the number and the timing of licking events is recorded and graphically displayed. The alternation between stimulus and no-stimulus phase can be based on TIME or N° OF LICKS, according to the user experimental paradigm. When no stimulus is delivered, the system can be simply used as a software-driven lickometer.

The duration of each phase is user-defined for each cage based either on time or on the animal behaviour (i.e. the sipper stimulus is enabled after a defined number of licking events have occurred).  At the end of the test a report will summarize the results; these results can be automatically printed and exported into a spreadsheet.
