The Morris Water Maze is a behavioral procedure designed to test spacial memory. The maze has advantages over conventional mazes such as:

  • Elimination of local cues such as trace sents
  • No fixed escape formula


  • Pools are nested in customized carts on swivel casters with wheel brakes.
  • Elevated to make the pool more accessible
  • Include wheels, which provide convenience in positioning, adjusting and storing the maze.
  • Side drains for quick emptying and cleanup
  • Include Clear Plexiglas islands for use in Morris Maze applications (Default island 60030)
