Spatial memory and hippocampal pallium through vertebrate evolution: insights from reptiles and teleost fish
The forebrain of vertebrates shows great morphological variation and specialized adaptations. However, an increasing amount of neuroanatomical and functional data reveal that the evolution of theExpand

Conservation of Spatial Memory Function in the Pallial Forebrain of Reptiles and Ray-Finned Fishes
The hippocampus of mammals and birds is critical for spatial memory. Neuroanatomical evidence indicates that the medial cortex (MC) of reptiles and the lateral pallium (LP) of ray-finned fishes couldExpand

Encoding of geometric and featural spatial information by goldfish (Carassius auratus).
Goldfish (Carassius auratus) were trained in different place-finding tasks as a means of analyzing their ability to encode the geometric and the featural properties of the environment. Expand

Spatial and non-spatial learning in turtles: the role of medial cortex
In mammals and birds, hippocampal processing is crucial for allocentric spatial learning. In these vertebrate groups, lesions to the hippocampal formation produce selective impairments in spatialExpand

Place and cue learning in turtles
Turtles (Pseudemys scripta) were trained in place, cue, and control arm maze procedures. The turtles learned both tasks with accuracy. Subsequent probe and transfer trials revealed guidance andExpand

Multiple spatial learning strategies in goldfish (Carassius auratus)
Abstract There is a considerable amount of evidence that mammals and birds can use different spatial learning strategies based on multiple learning and memory systems. Unfortunately, only a fewExpand

Spatial learning in turtles
Abstract. Turtles (Pseudemys scripta) were trained in place, cue and control open-field procedures. The turtles trained in both the place and the cue procedures were able to learn their respectiveExpand

Telencephalic ablation in goldfish impairs performance in a ‘spatial constancy’ problem but not in a cued one
This work was aimed to study if goldfish telencephalon is involved differentially in spatial and cue learning. With this purpose, animals were assigned to two learning conditions, 'spatial constancy'Expand

Spatial learning-induced increase in the argyrophilic nucleolar organizer region of dorsolateral telencephalic neurons in goldfish
Spatial learning and memory related morphological changes in the argyrophilic nucleolar organizer region (AgNOR) of telencephalic neurons in goldfish were quantitatively evaluated by means of AgNORExpand

Reversal learning deficit in a spatial task but not in a cued one after telencephalic ablation in goldfish
The fish telencephalon seems to be involved in spatial learning and memory in a similar manner to the hippocampus of the land vertebrates. For instance, telencephalon ablated goldfish are impaired inExpand
