CyberRat is a fully interactive and responsive digital video presentation
of a real laboratory animal. CyberRat provides a database containing over
1,600 behavioral video clips, all seamlessly played back in unique
sequences using stochastic algorithms. Student record keeping and data
archives are maintained on our own internet servers to give instructors
easy access to student progress summaries--anywhere, anytime!
Why CyberRat is Realistic Beyond All Expectations!
Gross-motor activity habituates to the novelty of an animal being placed into the chamber during pre-conditioning habituation sessions.
Pre-session water deprivation levels have realistic effects on performance.
Water satiation occurs naturally within sessions involving high-density use of reinforcements.
CyberRat allows the use of "successive approximation" training techniques for shaping many new behaviors, including some--like bar pressing--that will almost never occur unless you shape them.
Prior to shaping, magazine train subjects to respond to conditioned reinforcement sounds associated with primary "water" reinforcement delivery. Intermittent schedules of reinforcement, whether interval or ratio create standard response rate patterns. Schedule densities result in realistic rate differences and you may even experience "ratio strain" if you lean a schedule too quickly! Here's just one comparative example of two live animals reaching satiation across a 60 min session vs. a single CyberRat equivalent session:
