Languages of publication
An adaptation of roughness dicrimination task successfully used on rats was performed on mice. It was found that mice can master discrimination of rough surfaces using only mystacial vibrissae. This task can be used for studying sensory abilities of genetically modified mice as well as dynamics and pharmacology of complex sensory learning.
