Abstract:This project studied the strength of both the short-term and long-term memory of a rat. Training in the Morris Water maze was conducted on each rat over a period of 5 days. The results produced stated that the rats indeed have a stronger short-term memory. These results are particularly important as they can be related to the brain fuctions of humans.
