As for the WCST and Matching To Sample tasks, the Touchscreen allows studying learning and memory processes, especially on rodents. We already developed tactile tasks, some of them including touchscreen, for other species: Humans, Primates, Horses, Hens, Trouts.

The poke on shapes on the screen is permitted by a touchscreen OR by a frame of infrared beams located all around each window.
Our software allows to:
A software module for results extraction gives the performances of the animal trial by trial, as well as overall performances:
This software displays the results in a Microsoft Excel compatible datasheet.
