O’Keefe and Nadel distinguish two paradigms for navigation, the “locale system” for map-based navigation and the “taxon (behavioral orientation) system” for route navigation. This paper models the taxon system, the map-based system, and their interaction; and argues that the map-based system involves the interaction of hippocampus with other systems. We relate taxes to the notion of an affordance. Just as a rat may have basic taxes for approaching food or avoiding a bright light, so does it… CONTINUE READING
