Lafayette Instrument. The Animal Behavior Environment Test System (ABET) is a fully
integrated, Microsoft Windows™-based program that allows for flexible
computerized control and monitoring of up to 16 environments.
Compatible with virtually any animal behavior equipment, the ABET
software program provides a user-friendly, point-and-click programming
method to create an unlimited number of schedules. ABET eliminates
your need to learn computer programming to operate the system. All of
the system options are chosen through a series of pull-down windows,™,
buttons, and check boxes.
The serial 5-choice reaction time task forms the first in what is expected to be a growing set of operant based tests in
mice, allowing the exploitation of molecular genetics methods in unraveling the genetic contribution to complex
psychological and behavioral processes.
Our commitment to the scientific community is underscored by the investments that we have made in creating product lines that lead the industry not only in breadth, application
and ease of use but also in their state-of-the-art design.

This society was formed to present symposia and publish material which bring
a quantitative analysis to bear on the understanding of behavior. [It] holds its
annual meeting in conjunction with the
Association for Behavior Analysis (ABA). Talks at SQAB focus on the development and use of mathematical formulations to:
characterize one or more dimensions of an obtained data set, derive predictions to be compared
with data, and generate novel data analyses. These
Tutorials are videotaped and are for sale at $15 each, $270 for the set of 30 plus shipping.
SQAB will meet on May 26 - May 28, 2012, right before ABAI in Seattle, WA.
