The circular central platform T Maze offered by MazeEngineers is used in experiments to investigate spatial navigation in rodents.
The apparatus is a T-shaped acrylic maze elevated above the floor. It consists of a circular central platform and three arms bounded by high stainless-steel lips.
A remote-controlled food dispenser is attached to the end of each arm can be added to match the baseline specifications of the seminal paper.
To prevent the rat from interfering with the food dispensers, a transparent Perspex barrier is set vertically between the end of each arm and the corresponding dispenser. A small hole at the base of each barrier allows food pellets to be ejected onto the arm.
Maze Engineers offer the circular central platform T Maze for both mice and rats. Custom coloring and customization are available upon request.
