Ugo Basile's Rotometer is specifically designed for recording rotations in UNRESTRAINED, FREELY MOVING MICE. THETHER IS NOT REQUIRED!
There are several well-characterized causes of animals to exhibit rotational behaviour:
- unilateral lesions (dopamine)
- uneven/unilateral higher expression of levels of neurotransmitters (GABA or dopamine)
- anxiety/stress may cause this aberrant behaviour.
- exposure to some drugs, or drug abuse, or withdrawal.
The mouse (or small rat) is placed on a 20cm diam. circular arena, enclosed in a clear Perspex cyinder, 25cm tall. Simply attach the included tiny magnet (the size of a grain of rice) to the animal tail and the Rotometer automatically tracks clockwise and counterclockwise rotations. Digital read-out shows accrued rotations. The Rotometer features Portable Memory Stick technology, USB interface, & software for connection to PC.
