During short foraging excursions away from their home, central place foragers update their position relative to their point of departure by processing signals generated by locomotion. They therefore can home along a self-generated vector without using learned references. In rodents,,,, and other mammals,, this path integration process (dead reckoning) can occur on the basis of purely internal signals, such as vestibular or proprioceptive (re)afferences. We report here that hamsters are also… CONTINUE READING
