Abstract
Tradicionalan pogled na senzoričke regije mozga držao je kako je aktivnost neurona u tim regijama vođena isključivo osjetnim informacijama istog modaliteta kao i regija u pitanju. Međutim, novija saznanja upućuju na to kako su senzoričke regije mozga pod utjecajem informacija kao što su kretanje ili pozornost životinje, očekivanje nagrade, prijašnje iskustvo.Kako bi se obrađivanje osjetne informacije moglo promatrati u tim različitim kontekstima,nužno je omogućiti snimanje aktivnosti pojedinog neurona istraživane regije kod budnih životinja koje se aktivno ponašaju. Ovaj diplomski rad opisuje bihevioralni zadatak vizualne diskriminacije kojeg miš kao modelna životinja može lako savladati i ispoljiti stabilno ponašanje čak i u uvjetima snimanja visoke rezolucije.

Parallel abstract (English)
Traditionally it was thought how activity of neurons in sensory brain regions is driven by sensory information of the same modality as the region in question. However, recent findings are showing how brain sensory regions are also affected by non-sensory information such as locomotion, attention, award expectation or previous experience. In order to observe sensory information processing in various contexts mentioned, one must observe neural activity at the single cell level in region of interest while animal is awake and behaving. This thesis is describing a novel behavioral visual discrimination paradigm that is easily learned by mouse as the model animal, and that gives out stable behavior even in condition of high resolution imaging.
