The Zebrafish 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). See the video for how to grade this maze. Optional food wells, doors, and return to start arms can be added to your order a-la-carte. Non-reflective options are made in the interior of the maze on request.
The application of optogenetics has been rapidly developing since 2010, it’s research field covers several classical experimental animal species, such as flies, mice, rats, zebrafish, primates (Monkey, cynomolgus monkey, rhesus monkey, etc.). These animals generally have the advantages of short developmental and reproductive cycle and easy integration of foreign genes, thus facilitating the introduction of Photosensitive Protein Gene and the screen of the state of expression.
MazeEngineers offers generic backlighting display cases for use with smaller mazes such as the open field, novel object recognition, and Y/T mazes. The sizing can be customized upon request for larger mazes as well. Please inquire for more information.
