In this test no training or food is required. Three identical arms are mounted symmetrically on an equilateral triangular center.


Calculates and analyzes parameters related to learning and memory automatically, such as the time needed to reach rewarded arm. Analyze behaviors in relation to Arm, such as the number of entries into each arm.
