The Modified T-Maze is a T shaped apparatus having an elongated arm that serves as a start area and two goal arms. It is used to study learning, cognition and memory behavior in rodents.
The conventional T-Maze is modified by slightly elevating one of the goal arms of the maze. It allows the subject to choose between the arms by following its memory and exploratory traits.
The goal arms contain goal boxes that are used for confining a subject during a trial. The subject can be forced to explore or given a free choice to select between the goal arms depending upon their cognitive response.
Mazeengineers offer the Modified T-Maze.
