  • First developed in the 1980s by Trevor Robbins in Cambridge to investigate attentional function in rats, the 5-choice serial reaction time task involves continuous scanning by the subject across a spatial array of visual stimuli. On detecting a brief stimulus at one of five locations, the subject must make a nose poke in order to collect a reward. The task has also been conducted successfully in several strains of mice, including transgenic models. This unit presents the procedures required to… CONTINUE READING
