Elevated Plus Maze

The Elevated Plus Maze test is a widely used model for testing anxiety based on the natural aversion of rodents to explore elevated and open spaces. Four arms are arranged in the shape of a cross – two arms have surrounding walls, the other arms have no walls.

TSE Elevated Plus Mazes can be used in combination with the video tracking system TSE VideoMot2 that offers a dedicated analysis protocol for this paradigm. TSE Elevated Plus Mazes are also available as fully computerized systems with infrared sensors at each arm entrance.
