Barnes maze

The TSE Barnes Maze can be used in combination with the video tracking TSE VideoMot2 to investigate spatial learning & memory in rodents without stress of swimming (Water Maze) or of food deprivation (8-Arm-Radial Maze). The animal is placed in the center of the maze and learns the spatial location of an escape tunnel often connected to the home cage (positive reinforcement) by using extra-maze cues.

The Barnes Maze is available for rats and mice with variable sizes containing different number of holes. The VideoMot2 system tracks and analyzes the movement pattern of animals allowing the visualization of different search strategies. Total distance moved and average speed are calculated as well.

Key features

  • test of spatial learning & memory in a „dry” environment
  • select between large (40 holes) and small (20 holes) configuration
  • choice of colors in order to fulfill the contrast requirement of the video tracking system
  • includes start box and escape tunnel
