Laboratory facilities

Laboratory facilities include two experimental cubicles, each equipped with two experimental chambers as shown. Each of the four experimental chambers has a microcomputer equipped with a touch-sensitive screen and pellets dispensers. In most of the experiments, the subjects respond to the presented stimuli by directly touching the computer screen through a window in the chamber. According to the experimental contingencies, food is presented in small trays located above the computer screen.
