The aquatic cross maze is a multifunctional maze for zebrafish learning and memory testing, but also allows for other tests, such as social preference. This is because you can adjust the maze any way you want with several inserts. It can also be fitted with colored sleeves for color discrimination learning. Of course, the aquatic cross maze is perfectly suited for video tracking your zebrafish with EthoVision XT.
The cross maze is excellent for T-maze testing or similar discriminative learning tasks. The fish learn to select a certain zone to swim to based on natural preference for the environment, and discrimination can be based on the colored sleeves you use, which are included with the maze. Taught to expect a certain reward, fish will normally learn this quite easily.

Zebrafish and learning paradigms
Zebrafish have become an important animal model for studying neurodegenerative diseases. In validation of these models, both pathologically and behaviorally, many standardized paradigms have been translated from rodent models to zebrafish.

Tools for zebrafish research
We have a wide range of tools for all kinds of behavioral tests for zebrafish. From software to measure activity, heartbeat, and flow in embryos and larvae, to video tracking the movement of adults in several learning, anxiety, or social behavior paradigms.
