Classical conditioning program help
« on: October 22, 2014, 05:26:28 pm »
I am trying to figure out this program (attached) that I plan to use for classical conditioning in mice using a MED-PC operant chamber.
The program is as follows : 10 s precue, 10 s cue (sound), 10 s post cue, variable ITI ranging from 60 to 180 s; 12 trials per session.
2700Hz, 85dB, 10 sec tone
I have also attached an output from the run.
My questions are as follows:
a) Why is DIMH=31 and DIMZ=5000 ( I know DIM H is to hold HE data but where is it in the output?) What is DIM Z for? What is LIST B ?

b) What is the event index?
c) Where do i see data for parameters listed under DIM D?
d) Under SS1> S1 what is SET o=5 and SET l=12000 for? My understanding is that the duration is 10 sec for the cue, but then where does 12000 come from?
e) Under SS1>S1 how do you interpret the code D(time)=D (time) +0.1
show 1, session time, d  (time)/60---> S2 OR

Can someone interpret  what the steps  mean for SS1 to SS9 and if the output attached makes any sense.

Any help would be appreciated!
