The Pig Spatial Maze Task is a spatial learning and memory-based navigational task that promotes cognitive abilities when used as an enrichment. It was developed by Siegford, Rucker, and Zanella (2008) to provide pre-weaning piglets with physical and cognitive enrichment.
The Maze consists of an open arena having three panels. Each panel has three flap style doors that can be closed to block entry or positioned to manipulate the entry space. The panels are arranged parallel to each other with adequate choice-space in between. The panels are removable to allow manipulation of task complexity.
The maze can easily be adapted for different investigations and protocols such as drug testing and brain lesions.
