We provide unique VR systems for the study of animal behaviour in neuroscience. Our JetBall spherical treadmills allow a mouse or rat to navigate and perform behavioural tasks in a virtual world, while the brain is examined with optogenetic, electrophysiological, or in-vivo imaging methods.
VR allows much more flexible modifications of experimental environments and conditions than real mazes, e.g. hiding and switching landmarks automatically, teleporting of an animal to a new task or by using endless mazes.
We spent years developing and refining our JetBall and other systems for rodents in cooperation with leading scientists. Utilize our experience for your own research to explore new horizons in neurobiology.
