BACKGROUND Monitoring mouse behavior is a critical step in the development of modern pharmacotherapies. NEW METHOD Here we describe the application of a novel method that utilizes a touch display computer (tablet) and software to detect, record, and report fine motor behaviors. A consumer-grade tablet device is placed in the bottom of a specially made… (More)
A device for generating programmed sequences of voltage pulses is described. Initial pulse parameters are entered from a key pad. Parameters can be varied in systematic fashion to generate a range of test pulse sequences automatically. An application for a two-microelectrode voltage clamp is used to illustrate the capabilities.
