The water radial-arm maze: Four out of eight arms platformed protocol for rodents

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This protocol provides the information necessary to experimentally test rodents on a water escape radial-arm maze task assessing working and reference memory simultaneously. Apparatus setup, testing items needed, step-by-step test procedures, testing score sheets, performance quantification procedures, and troubleshooting are specified, detailed, and discussed. Examples of peer-reviewed published research literature using these procedures are also provided.
