Rats were allowed to explore simple Y mazes with dissimilar alternatives (a white arm in one experiment, a white and black arm, small trinkets, etc., in a second experiment) introduced after initial exploration. Results showed alternatives to be explored more when novel, the exploration to be less orderly with dissimilar than with similar alternatives, the white alternative to be explored less than the black, and arms with many alternatives to be explored more than empty arms.
