The delayed match to sample protocol for rodents

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This protocol provides the information necessary to experimentally test rodents on a delayed match to sample task assessing working and recent memory. Procedures are also discussed for extended delay testing to evaluate memory retention at different time intervals. Apparatus setup, step-by-step test procedures, testing score sheets, and performance quantification procedures are specified, detailed, and discussed. Examples of peer-reviewed published research literature using these procedures are also provided.
