The Morris water maze (MWM) has been used to assess cognitive function in rats after a variety of lesions designed to model brain damage and to assess the effects of drugs, growth factors, and neural transplants on post-operative deficits. The present study examined recovery of spatial navigation in the MWM over time in order to model the spontaneous… CONTINUE READING
