Active Avoidance Conditioning

My name is Matthew Guido and I am presently a sophomore at Regis 
High School in New York. I am raising a generation of zebrafish and 
hope to examine the genetics of the embryos and how it correlates to 
how the fish performs in an active avoidance conditioning experiment. I 
am currently trying to obtain instructions on the construction of a 
shuttle box. An article called, "Inhibition of Memory Consolidation by 
Antibodies against Cell Adhesion Molecules after Active Avoidance 
Conditioning in Zebrafish" published by Pradel et al., sites a shuttle box 
that originally was the design of Horner et al. (1961) and Priont and 
Schimdt (1988). I was wondering if there is any way that I could obtain 
these original articles or the diagram of the shuttle box construction 
with material instruction from these articles.

If this is not possible, I was wondering if anyone could possibly 
recommend a construction method or an article which contains 
detailed construction information.  

Thank you very much for all your help in this matter.
