Placa GEOTAXIS inclinata
The inclined geotaxis board (slant board) is mainly used to assess motor coordination in rodents when challenged on a sloped surface.
The subjects are placed individually on the sloped platform facing in a downward direction (negative geotaxis). The latency to turn and orient themselves to be facing up the slope is recorded. This can be repeated at varying inclines to assess motor coordination and righting.
Delays in the ability to reorient could be indicative of delays in motor, balance, or vestibular function.
The inclined geotaxis board consists of sloped platforms of varying angles from horizontal to the desktop (0° to 90°).
