The intermediate and medial hyperstriatum ventrale (IMHV) of the chick brain is known to be essential for the learning process of imprinting. The activity of neurons was recorded from the left IMHV of 2-day-old unanaesthetized chicks while the chicks were free to move in a running wheel. The chicks were either raised in complete darkness or visually trained (imprinted) with a set duration of exposure to a visual image. The first group of these birds was trained by exposure for 100 min to a… CONTINUE READING
