• The Rodent Operant Bucket (ROBucket), designed by Dr. Alexxai Kravitz and Kavya Devarakonda of the Eating and Addiction Section, Diabetes Endocrinology and Obesity Branch, NIDDK, is an inexpensive and easily assembled open-source operant chamber, based on the Arduino microcontroller platform, that can be used to train mice to respond for a reward.

  • In their 2016 paper, " ROBucket: A low cost operant chamber based on the Arduino microcontroller, " Kavya Devarakonda, Katrina P. Nguyen, and Alexxai V. Kravitz validate ROBucket by demonstrating its application in an operant conditioning paradigm, as well as, detail the hardware comprising ROBucket, and the flexible software controlling it.

  • In the present paper, we asked whether the EMG activity of the LCMs themselves could also be contingently modified, using the same procedures that produce operant conditioning of the behavioral response. (jneurosci.org)
  • Thus, this restricted response system provides a useful preparation for examining the neural mechanisms of operant conditioning of head-waving in Aplysia. (jneurosci.org)
  • I could say the actual response he gave of being angry would be the conditioned and unconditioned response rather than being startled. (studymode.com)
  • A 1964 study by Frank Hewett "Teaching Reading to an Autistic Boy through Operant Conditioning" published in The Reading Teacher is still used today as a benchmark in the field of education, since it is one of the first and most systematic demonstrations on the use of OC in an autistic child.

  • Throughout his lifetime, Dinsmoor's work expanded upon B.F. Skinner's study of operant conditioning. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the first paper of this series (Cook and Carew, 1989a), we showed that the electromyographic (EMG) activity of a discrete band of neck muscles, the lateral columellar muscles (LCMs) of Aplysia is significantly correlated with the component of head-waving (the horizontal component) that is modified during operant conditioning.

  • Eventually, the invertebrate will be conditioned to stay on the side that does not undergo a temperature change. (wikipedia.org)
