Maze [Elevated Plus]

Mazes are the traditional tool in assessing learning and memory performance. Using food as the incentive to reach the goal, animals are either required to execute a specific search sequence or minimize time/errors in the quest for a reward. Temporal measurements and error scoring are the key parameters recorded.

Columbus Instruments offers three standard mazes: Radial Arm, Figure-8, and Elevated Plus. All mazes are constructed from stainless steel to facilitate inter-trial cleaning for elimination of odor cues.

Maze floor is solid stainless steel. Each maze can be monitored visually with manual scoring by an attending observer or by video/photocell systems for data collection and analysis. Columbus Instruments offers Videomex-V (video) and Multi-Varimex (photo-cell) products that automate this process.

Consult Columbus Instruments for other maze configurations. "T", "Y" and other mazes are available as semi-custom products.
