Forced Swim Test Enclosure

The Forced Swim Test is the most commonly used test for assessment of depression in animal models. The test is commonly used to measure the effect of antidepressant drugs on behavior. The San Diego Instruments forced swim test is designed to work with the ANY-maze video tracking system with either top or side placement of the camera. Importantly, the video tracking feature allows you to set your own parameters for inactivity.
