The Y-maze is used to assess exploratory behavior and/or spatial recognition of rodents. Three identical, equidistant arms, designed with gradual turns, promote exploration of the apparatus. Barrier blocks (optional) can be used to employ recognition or reversal paradigms.
The Y-maze is similar to the T-maze, but has three identical arms. Gradual turns of the Y-maze decrease learning time as compared to the sharp turns of the T-maze.
Available for rat or mouse.
Walls fit solidly in slotted base, but lift off for easy cleaning.
Grey, non reflective base plate.
