Evidence from studies of amnesia and functional imaging in humans suggest that the medial temporal lobe is involved in the learning of higher-order sequences during acquisition of serial reaction time (SRT) tasks. However, these studies have not clarified whether the hippocampal formation specifically is essential to this type of learning. Here, we developed a rodent model of the SRT task to examine the specific roles of the hippocampal formation in learning first- and second-order conditional… CONTINUE READING
