QA Head Movements

Adult female rats, non-deprived, are held in a village stock restraint tube, so that their body is restrained but their neck and head protrude from the restraint tube.

Rats are exposed for 30-min in the center of the 14T magnet, or in a white PVC tube (Sham magnet). Following exposure, rats are videotaped for another 5 min, still in the restraint tube, to record post-exposure head movements. The next day, the exposures are counterbalanced.
