High impact information on Spatial Behavior


Anatomical context of Spatial Behavior

  • Retrograde tracing methods were used to identify forebrain projections to NCL and to suggest a possible role of this area in mediating spatial behavior [6].
  • To better define the role of the avian caudolateral neostriatum (NCL) in spatial behavior, we used homing pigeons to explore the effects of NCL lesions on a sun compass based spatial learning task [7].

Associations of Spatial Behavior with chemical compounds

  • In addition, these results also suggest that the lateral septum may play a possible role in some form of spatial behavior easily disrupted by atropine methylnitrate [8].
  • Chronic exposure to caffeine during early development modifies spatial behavior in juvenile jewel fish schools [9].
  • In a first experiment, diazepam (0.25 mg/kg) improves the performance of subordinate mice toward the female, as shown by the increase of proxemic behavior, anogenital sniffing, and social grooming of the female [10].
  • These findings suggest sex-specific patterns of relationships between circulating testosterone and spatial processing, which apply to everyday spatial behavior [11].

Gene context of Spatial Behavior

  • The LPC-1 and LPC-2 are likely to correspond to the processes represented by P3a and P3b, based on their temporal and spatial behavior [12].
  • NCL is therefore suited to participate in a neural circuit that regulates spatial behavior [6].
  • Thus, we show that RS cortex is part of an extended neural circuit involved in spatial behavior in both Long-Evans and Dark Agouti rats, but its role in the place task may be masked by an innate nonspatial deficit in Dark Agouti rats [13].
