Behavioural neuroscience benefits tremendously from the ability to study awake animals which are able to move naturally. In general, linear treadmills require relatively little effort in animal training yet open wide possibilities in combination with additional methods such as virtual reality or external stimuli.
The PhenoSys SpeedBelt is a linear treadmill designed for stand-alone applications or for the integration with our JetBall virtual reality systems. It is particularly compact to allow the easy combination with electrophysiology, advanced imaging as well as optogenetic methods.
