Behavioural neuroscience advances in organizational behaviour research

The academic field of Behavioral Neuroscience, based on biology of behavior, has widely been widely explored in terms of exploratory behaviour of animal and human (1), especially focusing on

Sleep deprivation effects on object discrimination task in zebrafish (Danio rerio)

It seems that only one night of sleep deprivation is enough to affect discriminative response in zebrafish, indicating its negative impact on cognitive processes, and could be a useful screening tool for cognitive dysfunction and a better understanding of the effect of sleep-wake cycles on cognition.

Food Deprivation, Body Weight Loss and Anxiety-Related Behavior in Rats

Results suggest that food deprivation is not always paralleled by an increased motivation to feed in a conflict situation, highlighting the need for tailored pilot experiments to evaluate the impact of food deprivation protocols on animals in regard to the principles of the 3Rs introduced by Russell and Burch.

Individual differences in response to alcohol exposure in zebrafish (Danio rerio)

It is confirmed that zebrafish is a model for alcohol induced functional (exploration and social behavior) changes that could be useful in high throughput drug screens and shows that shy animals seemingly more sensitive to behavioral change due to drug exposure.

Phil Zimbardo Remembers Neal Miller

Abstract Philip Zimbardo reports on his experiences with Neal Miller during Zimbardo's graduate student years at Yale. He describes Miller's classroom teaching, his role as mentor for his students'

Differences in Spatio-Temporal Behavior of Zebrafish in the Open Tank Paradigm after a Short-Period Confinement into Dark and Bright Environments

An alternative methodological approach for assessing the zebrafish behavior after a forced exposure to different environments is described and the analysis of ethologically-relevant patterns across time could be a potential phenotyping tool to evaluate theZebrafish exploratory profile in the open tank task.

Homebase behavior of zebrafish in novelty-based paradigms

The zebrafish world of colors and shapes: preference and discrimination.

Zebrafish ability for ambient color preference and 3D objects discrimination and this easy and simple memory test could serve as a useful screening tool for cognitive dysfunction and neurotoxicological studies.

On the clustering of cognitive learning theories

Introduction . The research problem is the contradiction between a large number of different cognitive learning theories and the lack of clustering based on traditional notions of a person's



Effect of Sensory and Behavioral Deprivation upon Exploratory Behavior in the Rat

The presenr research is designed to investigate the question: What is the effect upon exploratory behavior of varying durations of early behavioral and early sensory deprivation? Shortly after

Animal models of anxiety.

The heuristic value of an animal model of anxiety is focused on the better understanding of neurobiological correlates of anxiety and the clinical impact, including the development of novel

Dopamine D4 Receptor-Knock-Out Mice Exhibit Reduced Exploration of Novel Stimuli

D4R−/− mice exhibit reductions in behavioral responses to novelty, reflecting a decrease in novelty-related exploration, and the largest phenotypic differences were observed in the novel object test, which maximizes approach behavior.

Effect of Previous Exploratory Activity on the Exploration of a Simple Maze

The motivation involved ‘builds up’ in the rat when it is not exploring and is reduced by exploration, then exploration of one environment should reduce the motivation and so reduce the amount of exploration, immediately afterwards, of another quite different environment.

Visual and tactual variation seeking in the rat: intermodal effects of early rearing.

The intermodal effects of the early environmental stimulation were discussed in terms of Fiske and Maddi's activation model and ss previously exposed to the variable stimulation conditions, either tactual and/or visual, showed equal preference for variable stimulation in both tests.

Appetitive motivational states differ in their ability to augment aversive fear conditioning in rats (Rattus norvegicus).

The results of these experiments suggest that the modulation of fear conditioning by deprivation state is specific to certain motivational systems.

Effects of Habituation to Fear on the Exploratory Behaviour of Rats

It is proposed that mild fear facilitates exploratory behaviour whereas strong fear inhibits it, and that eventually the level of fear of the rats should be minimal and exploratory behaviours will sink to some base level.
