Designed for maximum flexibility, Habitest allows the user to implement the most behavioral test protocols in a single system of modular test arenas using modular stimulus and response devices. Habitest applications span the behavioral gamut, including:

  • Mazes
  • Active Avoidance
  • Runways
  • Passive Avoidance
  • Operant Conditioning
  • Fear Conditioning
  • Spatial Activity
  • Place Preference
  • Ergometry
  • Feeding and Drinking
With Habitest, users can create an endless variety of test environments, instantly and seamlessly reconfiguring for an endless variety of experimental modalities.

Habitest Stimulus and Response modules slip into the tracks of our cages and hubs. Stimulus response modules include those for visual and auditory stimuli, shockers, liquid and/or dry feeders, olfactory stimuli and ergometric activity.

Adding to the modular flexibility of the Habitest product line, we offer hubs and runways to expand the possibilities of our hardware. Hubs are available in four styles – square, hexagon, octagon and dodecagon (only for rat) and are used primarily for runway intersections in the radial arm maze, T-maze, Ymaze and other maze configurations.

Featuring the same bay tracks, any of our stimuli/response modules can easily be added to create unique testing environments. Runways are used to interconnect the hubs, modular test cages, shuttle cages and running wheel boxes. These can be installed in any bay track of our standard cages or can be joined together, end to end to double the length of the runway using our terminator/joiners. The terminator/joiner has a double set of tracks and can also accept standard stimuli/response modules. Photocell sensors are available to detect animal entries, passage, and exits from the runways
