  • Maze Runners• Merrell, David• 72 Mice• Homicidal heavy metal• Classical -8.5 minutes• Metal X 3• Control -5 minutes
  • Testing 1..2..3• Testing mice intelligence• Water maze vs. Regular maze• Variance of Regular
  • Hypothesizin’• The hypothesis that was developed based on the above information is that the mice that are listening to the classical music will be able to recall the way out of the maze faster than the mice who are in the control tank and the ones that are listening to the country music. This is also the hypothesis for if the mice are placed into a makeshift Morris Water Maze, the classical music listening mice will most definitely have better times than the other mice.
