Barnes Maze

Enhance your research on spatial learning and memory with the Barnes Maze Apparatus by Anilocus. This professional-grade behavioral apparatus, developed in partnership with Centre Scientific Apparatuses, is designed to assess hippocampus function in mice and rats. Featuring an elevated platform with 40 strategically placed holes and visual cues, this maze offers a comprehensive understanding of spatial cognition. With randomly placed escape tunnels, it challenges subjects to navigate and explore.

Dive into the fascinating world of memory and learning with the Barnes Maze, developed by renowned researcher Carol Barnes as an alternative to the the Morris Water Maze.
