Maze Puts Images on Floor, Where Rats Look
published on 26 February 2014
Visual acuity is sharpest for rats and mice when the animals are looking down. Researchers in the lab of Prof. Rebecca Burwell have found that rodents can learn tasks in a fraction of the usual number of repetitions when visual stimuli are projected onto the floor of the maze rather than onto the walls. Findings are reported in the Journal of Visualized Experiments.
