The emergence test is a free exploration paradigm designed to reduce anxiety by providing a safe enclosure within the open field in order to assess approach or exploratory behavior in rodents.

Briefly, the open field contained a white plastic cylinder with an open end located centrally. The subjects are placed into the cylinder and tested for 10-15 min. The parameters commonly evaluated in this task are the latency of emergence from the cylinder, the total time spent inside the cylinder, the time spent exploring the cylinder and general locomotor activity.
