If you exponentiate the 0.3365 (e^0.3365=1.4) it gives you the estimated odds ratio of choosing the correct maze for rats given orange odor relative to rats given lemon odor. In other words. the odds that the rats given orange odor choose correctly is 1.4 times the odds of rats given lemon odor. The fact that it's not significant means that the odor type does not contribute to whether they chose the correct maze. I'm unsure if this answers the research question, though. I feel like we are missing some kind of control level. I will continue thinking about this. @hlsmith

whew so many words. So we agree the outcome is binary - found the reward yes/no. Could they be smell an chemical trail left by a previous subject?

I got lost beyond this. How many rats, how many colonies, how many rats from each colony, why would colony matter? Did each rat just run the course once?
