Multiple Parallel Memory Systems in the Brain of the Rat
A theory of multiple parallel memory systems in the brain of the rat is described. Each system consists of a series of interconnected neural structures. The "central structures" of the three systemsExpand

Differential effects of fornix and caudate nucleus lesions on two radial maze tasks: evidence for multiple memory systems
The present experiments were designed to examine the hypothesis that the mammalian brain contains anatomically distinct memory systems. Rats with bilateral lesions of caudate nucleus orExpand

Parallel Information Processing in the Dorsal Striatum: Relation to Hippocampal Function
We investigated the effects of localized medial and lateral CPu lesions and fornix/fimbria lesions on responses to a local cue and to behavior based on cognitive–spatial information in the waterExpand

Parallel information processing in the water maze: evidence for independent memory systems involving dorsal striatum and hippocampus.
This experiment investigated the ability of rats with dorsal striatal or fornix damage to learn the location of a visible platform in a water maze. We also assessed the animals' ability to find theExpand

  • 1 July 1996
This review applies some new experimental findings and theoretical ideas about how reinforcers act on the neural mechanisms of learning and memory to the problem of how addictive drugs affectExpand

A triple dissociation of memory systems: hippocampus, amygdala, and dorsal striatum.
This study investigated the respective roles of the hippocampus, the amygdala, and the dorsal striatum in learning and memory. A standard set of experimental conditions for studying the effects ofExpand

Dopamine D3 Receptor Mutant Mice Exhibit Increased Behavioral Sensitivity to Concurrent Stimulation of D1 and D2 Receptors
The dopamine D3 receptor is expressed primarily in regions of the brain that are thought to influence motivation and motor functions. To specify in vivo D3 receptor function, we generated mutant miceExpand

Effects of medial and lateral caudate-putamen lesions on place- and cue-guided behaviors in the water maze: relation to thigmotaxis
Rats with dorsomedial or dorsolateral caudate-putamen lesions and sham-operated controls were trained on the standard hidden platform (place) task in the water maze. Compared to controls, rats withExpand

Dissociation of hippocampus and caudate nucleus memory systems by posttraining intracerebral injection of dopamine agonists.
The effect of posttraining intracerebral injections of the indirect dopamine (DA) agonist d-amphetamine, the direct D2 agonist LY 171555, and the direct D1 agonist SKF-38393 on the acquisition of twoExpand
