Y-maze test

The Y-maze, as well as T-maze, is used to study spatial working memory and and alternation behavior. Animal behavior in this test is susceptible to hippocampal disfunction. It allows to measure the willingness of rodents to explore new environments. Rodents prefer to investigate a non-visited arm of the maze. Many brain regions such as hippocampus, septum, basal forebrain, and prefrontal cortex are involved in this task.
