Psychology Museum and Resource Center Experiments

A sample experiment

The equipment that will be needed:
  • Dish (conditioning plate)
  • Small brush
  • Syringe
  • Vial
  • Planarian
The planarians are kept in a recycled fish tank. They are fed liver.
Put your planarian into a container to transfer it to the conditioning plate. To get it out, use the brush.
With a puff of air, it will contract.
After a few puffs, it should stop contracting. It is now habituated.
