We’ve finished work on creating an insertable radial arm maze setup for our existing circle maze. It is has polycarbonate construction with stainless steel fittings that lock into the circumferential wall. All eight arms have guillotine doors for training and behavior shaping. The walls and doors can be easily removed in minutes to allow for a totally open circle maze or,
with a black polycarbonate insert, a ‘ZERO’ maze.
The tops are open and continuous so nothing will catch on the electrophys data cable from the commutator above.
Next we will be building an automatic liquid feeder-reward system!
