Spontaneous alternation (SA) in the rat is a behavioral phenomenon which can be best described by using a simple example. It has been repeatedly demonstrated that a rat, running successive trials in a simple two choice maze, such as a T maze, in which both choices are equally desirable, will consistently show a strong tendency to change its choice from trial to trial (Glanzer, 1953).
