Sorry can you repeat the question, I didn't see it originally. Radial
maze testing in mice can be particularly challenging. In fact, any
situatoin where you need to food dep mice can be problematic; they do
not tolerate food dep as well as rats, they are much more finicky about
what they will eat (many won't each sucrose pellets for example), and
when they do eat them, they can't eat very many of them so they need ot
be very small. But what was the original question.
