7550 - Passive Avoidance - step through

This classic instrument for Pavlovian Conditioning exploits the tendency in mice and rats to escape from an illuminated area into a dark one (step-through method). The instrument consists of a tilting-floor box (for mice or rats) divided into two compartments by a sliding door and a control unit incorporating a scrambler shocker.

The Passive Avoidance System has two compartment animal enclosure with black and white compartments, incorporating the same tilting floor timing sensor as the Shuttle Box System, with a sliding door partition.
 
The start pedal initiates the Door Delay timer, (the opening delay is able to be set from 0 – 99 sec, in 1 sec steps.) Latency to crossing is measured to 0.1 sec. A 1 sec safety delay to door closure ensures that the animal is not upset or disturbed by the closing door. Independent lids add to ease of operation and cleaning.
 
Different models for Mice and for Rats have been appropriately dimensioned to meet published enclosure size recommendations and to optimize experimentation.
 
Print-out and data collection via the optional 2600 Multifunction Printer.
