Morriz Water Maze

The Morris water maze is one of the most widely used tasks in behavioral neuroscience for studying the psychological processes and neural mechanisms of spatial learning and memory. The basic task is very simple. Animals, usually rats or mice, are placed in a large circular pool of water and required to escape from water onto a hidden platform whose location can normally be identified only using spatial memory. There are no local cues indicating where the platform is located. Conceptually, the task derives from place cells that are neurons in the hippocampus which identify or represent points in space in an environment (O'Keefe, 1976).
