Novel, whisker-dependent texture discrimination task for mice.
Wu HP, Ioffe JC, Iverson MM, Boon JM, Dyck RH. Wu HP, et al. Behav Brain Res. 2013 Jan 15;237:238-42. doi: 10.1016/j.bbr.2012.09.044. Epub 2012 Sep 28. Behav Brain Res. 2013. PMID: 23026377
Many mammals use their mystacial vibrissae to palpate objects in their environment and encode information such as size, shape and texture. We have developed a novel method to assess the sensitivity with which mice can discriminate textures using their mystaci …

Whisker-mediated texture discrimination learning in freely moving mice.
Pacchiarini N, Berkeley R, Fox K, Honey RC. Pacchiarini N, et al. J Exp Psychol Anim Learn Cogn. 2020 Jan;46(1):40-46. doi: 10.1037/xan0000212. Epub 2019 Jul 1. J Exp Psychol Anim Learn Cogn. 2020. PMID: 31259576
Texture is often used as a convenient stimulus dimension to study aspects of discrimination learning in rodents. ...This texture discrimination and an equivalent odor discrimination were retained overnight (Experiments 1 and 2); and whisker trim

Whisker-mediated texture discrimination.
Diamond ME, von Heimendahl M, Arabzadeh E. Diamond ME, et al. PLoS Biol. 2008 Aug 26;6(8):e220. doi: 10.1371/journal.pbio.0060220. PLoS Biol. 2008. PMID: 18752356 Free PMC article.
Rats use their whiskers to rapidly and accurately measure the texture of objects. The authors evaluate recent evidence about how whisker movement across a surface produces texture-specific motion signals, and how the signals are represented by the brain....

Signaling by Synaptic Zinc is Required for Whisker-Mediated, Fine Texture Discrimination.
Patrick Wu HP, Dyck RH. Patrick Wu HP, et al. Neuroscience. 2018 Jan 15;369:242-247. doi: 10.1016/j.neuroscience.2017.11.020. Epub 2017 Nov 20. Neuroscience. 2018. PMID: 29158108
In the present study, we show that ZnT3 KO mice display a marked decrease in acuity for whisker-dependent texture discrimination. ZnT3 KO mice were not able to discriminate between textures having an average particle diameter less than 300 mum while co …

Behavioral study of whisker-mediated vibration sensation in rats.
Adibi M, Diamond ME, Arabzadeh E. Adibi M, et al. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2012 Jan 17;109(3):971-6. doi: 10.1073/pnas.1116726109. Epub 2012 Jan 4. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2012. PMID: 22219358 Free PMC article.
We addressed this question by training rats to make discriminations between sinusoidal vibrations simultaneously presented to the left and right whiskers. ...Although these results indicate that both elemental features contribute to the rats' sensation, a further test foun …

Coherence between Rat Sensorimotor System and Hippocampus Is Enhanced during Tactile Discrimination.
Grion N, Akrami A, Zuo Y, Stella F, Diamond ME. Grion N, et al. PLoS Biol. 2016 Feb 18;14(2):e1002384. doi: 10.1371/journal.pbio.1002384. eCollection 2016 Feb. PLoS Biol. 2016. PMID: 26890254 Free PMC article.
To resolve this question, we acquired three measures from rats--whisker motion, hippocampal local field potential (LFP), and barrel cortex unit firing--during a whisker-mediated texture discrimination task and during control conditions (not engaged in …
