Avoidance Learning

The avoidance learning test is a three-day automated home-cage approach to measure avoidance learning in a high-throughput fashion. Mice learn to switch to their non-preferred shelter entrance, by pairing their preferred entrance with a mildly aversive stimulus (i.e., illumination of the shelter).

Our scientists have successfully used this task to characterize inbred strains and mutant mice with avoidance learning deficits (Maroteaux et al., 2012).
