A computer model of rodent navigation, based on coupled mechanisms for place recognition, path integration, and maintenance of head direction, ooers a way to operationally combine constraints from neurophysiology and behavioral observation. We describe how one such model reproduces a variety of experiments by Collett, Cartwright, and Smith 6] in which gerbils learn to nd a hidden food reward, guided by an array of visual landmarks in an open arena. We also describe some neurophysiological… CONTINUE READING
