zero maze

The elevated Zero-Maze is a modification of the Elevated Plus-Maze which incorporates both traditional and novel ethological measures in the analysis of anxiety. The design comprises an elevated circular platform with two opposite enclosed quadrants and two open. This removes any ambiguity in interpretation of time spent on the central square of the traditional “plus” design, and allowing uninterrupted exploration. 

The maze includes infrared transparent inner walls which allow a single camera to see the animal in all parts of the maze. Requires an infrared illuminator and an infrared sensitive camera and lens (all cameras and lenses that we supply are IR sensitive)
