Description

Product needed: Startle and Fear system Purpose The VA intends to purchase a Startle and Fear system. The purpose of a startle and fear combined system is to test hippocampus-dependent associative learning and the brainstem-mediated acoustic startle reflex in rodents following traumatic brain injury. These two key behavioral endpoints proposed in the PI s grant. The two-in-one system provides an efficient, cost-effective approach to studying the behavioral response to traumatic brain injury in rodents. This device allows for various sensory stimuli (tones, light, shock) to be delivered using various protocols in a sound-attenuating chamber with sensors built in to monitor all aspects of movement or absence of movement in the animal. This information is transmitted to a computer where it is integrated with the software to offer data collection for numerous endpoints. Any change in startle behavior or freezing behavior can be used to assess brainstem-mediated acoustic startle reflexes or memory impairments, respectively, as a result of traumatic brain injury.
