Spatial memory can improve cache recovery in scatter-hoarding mammals; however, we lack knowledge about how spatial memory affects scatter-hoarding behavior. Captive-reared Siberian chipmunks (Tamias sibiricus) were orally dosed with docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and uridine-5-monophosphate (UMP) for 6 weeks to test if improved spatial memory affects scatter hoarding. Oral administration of DHA and UMP significantly increased the relative size of hippocampi of the chipmunks and increased… CONTINUE READING
