Elevated Plus Maze

During the Elevated Plus Maze (EPM) mice are introduced into the maze which contains two open and two enclosed arms. In turn, the time that a mouse spends on the open arm is a measure of anxiety-related behaviour. To date, we’ve used this test for characterization of commonly used inbred strains (Loos et al. 2009) and in the Stxbp1 +/- epileptic encephalopathy model (Kovacevic et al. 2018).
