The Rodent Open Olfactory Exploration Maze is an apparatus designed for studying the sense of smell in rodents, such as mice or rats. The maze is comprised of various chambers and arms that contain different odor stimuli, and the animal’s ability to navigate and differentiate between these odors is measured. This is often done through reward-based conditioning, where the animal is rewarded for correctly identifying a specific odor. The Open Olfactory Exploration Maze is used to study the neural mechanisms underlying olfaction and can provide insight into the role of different regions of the brain in processing odor information.
