Animals can adopt different navigation strategies according to the environment and the task they have to solve. The process of selecting the appropriate navigation strategy in mammals involves parallel pathways. The hippocampus has been thought to be the potential basis for a first type of navigation strategy in which a representation of the space is required. This representation uses spatially tuned neurons (place cells) found in the rat hippocampus. A second, different, navigation strategy… CONTINUE READING
