Description

The T maze is an enclosed apparatus in the form of a T placed horizontally, similar to the Y maze. Animals usually start from the base (long arm) of the T and allowed to choose one of the goal arms. The test relies on either spontaneous alternation or rewarded alternation(1). The Maze Engineers automated T maze uses a return to start module so that the mouse or rat can automatically return to the start area without human intervention, maximizing ease of use and automated experiments.

Strength & Durability

MazeEngineers_AutomatedMazeGraphics_Rev_Durable

Downwards directing doors is ideal for teathered experiments, and ensures animal safety

Our Conductor software allows for OpenAPI access, allowing for quick and easy modifications and plugin creation to infinitely customize your maze. Each custom ordered maze comes with 1 free baton creation

The maze functions with very little sound to minimize startle, anxiety, and maximum exploration within the maze

Complete trust in how long the maze will last–made of high quality, but also light weight aluminum with thick acrylic parts ensures both ideal animal environments and maximum strength for long lasting mazes
