Chronic Implantation of Whole-cortical Electrocorticographic Array in the Common Marmoset Misako Komatsu1, Takaaki Kaneko2,3, Hideyuki Okano2,3, Noritaka Ichinohe1,4 1Laboratory for Molecular Analysis of Higher Brain Function, RIKEN Center for Brain Science, 2Laboratory for Marmoset Neural Architecture, RIKEN Center for Brain Science, 3Department of Physiology, Keio University School of Medicine, 4Department of Ultrastructural Research, National Center of Neurology and Psychiatry We have developed a whole-cortical electrocorticographic array for the common marmoset that continuously covers almost the entire lateral surface of cortex, from the occipital pole to the temporal and frontal poles. This protocol describes a chronic implantation procedure of the array in the epidural space of the marmoset brain.
Automated, Long-term Behavioral Assay for Cognitive Functions in Multiple Genetic Models of Alzheimer's Disease, Using IntelliCage Akira Masuda1,2, Yuki Kobayashi1, Shigeyoshi Itohara1 1Laboratory for Behavioral Genetics, Center for Brain Science, RIKEN, 2Organization for Research Initiatives and Development, Doshisha University This paper describes a protocol for cognitive assessments for genetic models of the Alzheimer's disease using the IntelliCage system, which is a high throughput automated behavioral monitoring system with operant conditioning.
An Automated T-maze Based Apparatus and Protocol for Analyzing Delay- and Effort-based Decision Making in Free Moving Rodents Qi Zhang1,2, Yuki Kobayashi1, Hiromichi Goto1, Shigeyoshi Itohara1 1Laboratory of Behavioral Genetics, Center for Brain Science, RIKEN, 2Faculty of Human Science, University of Tsukuba This article introduces an automated T-maze apparatus that we invented, and a protocol based on this apparatus for analyzing delay-based decision making and effort-based decision making in free moving rodents.
