Active Passive Avoidance Chamber software provides the user with the ability to control the cue type, cue duration and shock intensity and time. By utilising auditory cues, light cues and with the help of Shock grid, Mouse or Rat can be forced to shuttle from one compartment to other. Active Passive Avoidance Chamber software records the start and end of shuttle episodes by analysing video frames in real time. Active Passive Avoidance Chamber software accurately reports total number of shuttle episodes and total shuttle time for each session.
