Lesions restricted to the dorsal, but not the ventral, hippocampus severely impair the formation of spatial memory. This dissociation was first demonstrated using the water maze task. The present study investigated whether the dorsal and the ventral hippocampus are involved differentially in spatial reference and spatial working memory using a four‐baited/four‐unbaited version of the eight‐arm radial maze task. This test allows the concurrent evaluation of reference and working memory with… Expand
