Delayed Spatial Win-shift Test on Radial Arm Maze
Authors:  Simone N. De Luca, Luba Sominsky and Sarah J. Spencer, date: 12/05/2016, view: 2037, Q&A: 0
The radial arm maze (RAM) is used to assess reference and working memory in rodents. This task relies on the rodent’s ability to orientate itself in the maze using extra-maze visual cues. This test can be used to investigate whether a rodent’s ...
