Following a clock- or phase-shift of the light dark cycle, hippocampal lesioned pigeons (Columba livia) consistently display a larger deviation in vanishing bearings away from the homeward direction compared to intact birds; an effect never seen in unshifted birds. In Experiment 1, control and hippocampal lesioned pigeons oriented similarly after being held 1 week under artificial lighting in the absence of a phase-shift. Housing under artificial light by itself does not result in between group… CONTINUE READING
