Fiber connections of the hippocampal formation and septum and subdivisions of the hippocampal formation in the pigeon as revealed by tract tracing and kainic acid lesions
The organization of the pigeon hippocampal formation was examined by tract tracing by using biotinylated dextran amine (BDA) and cholera toxin B subunit (CTB) and by injections of kainic acid toExpand

Organization of the avian “corticostriatal” projection system: A retrograde and anterograde pathway tracing study in pigeons
Birds have well‐developed basal ganglia within the telencephalon, including a striatum consisting of the medially located lobus parolfactorius (LPO) and the laterally located paleostriatumExpand

Magnetoreception and its trigeminal mediation in the homing pigeon
Two conflicting hypotheses compete to explain how a homing pigeon can return to its loft over great distances. One proposes the use of atmospheric odours and the other the Earth's magnetic field inExpand

Avian brains and a new understanding of vertebrate brain evolution
We believe that names have a powerful influence on the experiments we do and the way in which we think. For this reason, and in the light of new evidence about the function and evolution of theExpand

Fiber connections of the compact division of the posterior pallial amygdala and lateral part of the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis in the pigeon (Columba livia)
The compact division of the posterior pallial amygdala (PoAc) and lateral part of the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BSTL) are components of the limbic system in the pigeon brain. In thisExpand

Intratelencephalic connections of the hippocampus in pigeons (Columba livia)
Behavioral experiments using ablation of the hippocampus are increasingly being used to address the hypothesis that the avian hippocampus plays a role in memory, as in mammals. However, theExpand

Brainstem and Forebrain Contributions to the Generation of Learned Motor Behaviors for Song
Brainstem nuclei have well established roles in generating nonlearned rhythmic behaviors or as output pathways for more complex, forebrain-generated behaviors. However, the role of the brainstem inExpand
