The effects of environmental enrichment on motor activity, exploration and spatial performances were studied in young and old rats. Both young (4 mo old) and old (22 mo old) rats were housed from weaning to testing either in standard or in enriched conditions. All rats were submitted successively to spontaneous alternation test and to object exploration test. Results show that locomotion is decreased by age and enrichment but that the quality of exploration expressed by corrected alternation… CONTINUE READING
