Rat spontaneous spatial behavior is considered to be stochastic and is therefore commonly analyzed in terms of cumulative measures. Here, we suggest a method which generates a moment-to-moment representation of this behavior. It has been proposed earlier that rat spatial behavior can be partitioned into natural units termed excursions (round trips) performed from a reference place termed the rat's home base. We offer a phase plane representation of excursions (plotting the rat's momentary… CONTINUE READING
