Mammillothalamic tract lesions disrupt dead reckoning in the rat.

Abstract

Debate surrounds the role of the limbic system structures' contribution to spatial orientation. The results from previous studies have supported a role for the mammillary bodies and their projections to the anterior thalamus in rapid encoding of relationships among environmental cues; however, this work is based on behavioral tasks in which environmental… (More)
