About VJ Instruments Zero Maze

The VJ Instruments zero maze is used to investigate anxiety-related behavior, and for phenotpyping of rats and mice.The elevated Zero-Maze is a modification of the Elevated Plus-Maze which incorporates both traditional and novel ethological measures in the analysis of anxiety. The design comprises an elevated circular platform with two opposite enclosed quadrants and two open. This removes any ambiguity in interpretation of time spent on the central square of the traditional “plus” design, and allowing uninterrupted exploration.

  • Available for rat or mouse.
  • Walls fit solidly in slotted base.
  • Grey/black non-reflective base plate.
  • Removable legs mean the maze can be stored flat when not in used.
  • The VJ Instruments provides a complete solution to track the rodents in Zero maze.

    The rodent is placed in the maze and is allowed to freely explore the maze for 5 min.The rodent is observed by a camera mounted above the open field maze. The camera is connected to a PC where in MazeMazter software is installed. The time spent and frequency of entries into open and closed arms is recorded with VJ Instruments MazeMaster software by analyzing the video. Other parameters that are recorded by the software are Latency to first arm, total time spent, distance traveled in open and close arms,total distance traveled etc.
