This study was designed to assess the effect of ageing on spatial (allocentric and egocentric) strategies in rats. Two different tasks were designed for this purpose: one involving Morris' circular pool (distal extramaze cues) and another using the T water maze (egocentric cues). In the first task, the aged rats showed some difficulty in acquiring allocentric spatial learning skills. After increasing the number of trials in this task, there was no significant improvement in the performance of… CONTINUE READING
