A novel reaction time task for investigating force and time parameters of locomotor initiation in rats

Wolfgang Hauber
A novel simple reaction-time task for rats is described in the present study. Food-deprived rats were trained in a modified runway for rapid locomotor initiation, in response to a combined optical/acoustic stimulus, to receive a food reward. Rats rapidly learned this task with small variability, and movement patterns of locomotor initiation are congruent under these conditions. Reaction time, movement time and accelerative forces were recorded from each initiation of locomotion by means of video equipment...
