In the test, the animal is placed in a well-lit side of a two-compartment box and offered access through a narrow hole to a closed dark compartment. When the animal enters the dark side following its natural instinct, the opening is closed, and a mild foot shock is given. Thus, during this acquisition phase, the animal learns that the moving to the dark compartment has negative consequences. After the first acquisition, the animal is taken to its home cage and returned to the arena (test phase) after a delay, usually 24 h. https://www.creative-biolabs.com/drug-discovery/therapeutics/passive-avoidance-test.htm .
