The Food Carrying Apparatus is used to study navigational behavior in rodents. It is an adaptation of the food carrying paradigm used by Whishaw, Coles, and Bellerive (1995) to evaluate head direction cell activity in rodents.
The Food Carrying Apparatus is a circular arena that is surrounded by a high wall equipped with a series of eight doorways. Among the eight doorways, only one door leads to a refuge while others are false refuges.
Mazeengineers offer the Food Carrying Apparatus.
