The navigational abilities of rats were examined using the water maze after disorientation induced by rotation and/or swimming in darkness. Control and light-disoriented groups performed similarly, whereas the dark group and the dark-disoriented groups were initially much slower but improved to control levels. After receiving bilateral parietal lesions, multiple start position tests showed that both rotation groups were severely impaired in finding the hidden platform. The effects of… CONTINUE READING
