Performances on the water maze tests applied to 3-, 6- and 18-month old mice were compared by determining the escape latencies on five test days. Three-month-old SD and HD mice showed similar latencies, while the escape latencies of 6-month-old HD mice were significantly shorter than those of SD age-matched mice. SD and HD 18-month-old mice did not show any significant change in escape latencies. Swimming tracking analysis revealed that SD had longer trajectories as compared to age-matched HD mice, particularly at 6 months of age (inset). HD = hard diet; SD = soft diet (* = p < 0.05 for the HD group. # = p < 0.05 for the SD group)
