Spatial learning in the water maze is thought to rely both on distal cues and vestibular information [Aggleton JP, Vann SD, Oswald CJP, Good M. Identifying cortical inputs to the rat hippocampus that subserves allocentric spatial processes: a simple problem with a complex answer. Hippocampus 2000;10:466-74; Pearce JM. Animal learning and cognition: an introduction. UK: Psychology Press; 1997]. Experiment 1 demonstrates that while water maze retention relies primarily on cue-platform based… CONTINUE READING
