The 8‐arm radial maze consists of a central platform connected to eight enclosed arms, which each contain an invisible food reward at the end of the arm. This task requires mice to remember whether an arm has already been visited and therefore requires intact spatial working memory. The number of re-entry errors into previously visited arms is a measure of spatial working memory.
