Description:

The radial arm maze was first used by (Olton and Samuelson, 1976) to investigate spatial memory and learning in rats. The maze consists of a central location with set number of similar paths radiating outwards. It has been extensively used for rat and mouse studies as well as for studies conducted in children and adults.
