Comparing the learning abilities of male and female mice
The female mice completed the classic maze faster than the male mice. The female mice were right pawed while 80% of the male mice were left handed.
|Test maze||Mice behavior – speed in completing maze and paw preference|
|Male 1||Male 2||Male 3||Male 4||Male 5||Female 1||Female 2||Female 3||Female 4||Female 5|
|Classic maze –time (seconds)||65||58||67||59||72||48||52||55||43||47|
|T-maze- paw preference||Left||Right||Left||Left||Left||Right||Right||Right||Right||Right|

You should wear a pair of gloves when handling the rodents. This is to prevent getting bitten by the mice.
