Search swim pattern of a group of naïve rats subjected to a probe trial in the water maze following a 5-day training period. Noteworthy, rats spent a greater amount of time in the quadrant where the platform was situated during training (warm colored area at the bottom right). This swim pattern was obtained using a density plot script on Matlab.
