Spatial navigation in geometric mazes : a computational model of rodent behavior

  title={Spatial navigation in geometric mazes : a computational model of rodent behavior},
  author={Denis Sheynikhovich},
Navigation is defined as the capability of planning and performing a path from the current position towards a desired location. Different types, or strategies, of navigation are used by animals depending on the task they are trying to solve. Visible goals can be approached directly, while navigation to a hidden goal usually requires a memorized representation of relative positions of the goal and surrounding landmarks. Neurophysiological and behavioral experiments on rodents suggest that… CONTINUE READING
