Mouse Behavior

This video shows a mouse engaged in rewarded behavior in the laboratory. It shows about 30 s of footage. During this time the mouse engages in 5 trials (4 correct ones and one mistake).

Trials are started by going to the central port (black square). Then a grating stimulus appears to the left or to the right. The mouse has to go to the appropriate port to receive a fluid reward.
