Spatial learning and memory has been linked to the hippocampus and temporal lobes and though these areas are often damaged in traumatic brain injury (TBI), spatial learning deficits after TBI have not received much attention. In the present study, a virtual environment was used to challenge people with TBI to solve a task comparable to the Morris water(More)
The present study investigated whether spatial performance in the Morris water maze (MWM) recovers after bilateral transection of the fimbria/fornix (FF) in rats, whether such recovery results from restored or residual spatial cognitive capacity, and what contribution, if any, pre-operative training makes to such recovery. Following surgery, rats were(More)
Sex differences in human spatial navigation are well known. However, the exact strategies that males and females employ in order to navigate successfully around the environment are unclear. While some researchers propose that males prefer environment-centred (allocentric) and females prefer self-centred (egocentric) navigation, these findings have proved(More)
