The setup, designed for the rodent Meriones unguiculatus (gerbil), allows flexible stimulus presentations and rewarding as well as on-line data registration. It consists of a spacious housing where the animals have free access to water. Food is supplied exclusively in the y-maze training compartment and serves as a reinforcer in an operant conditioning paradigm.
