Estimation of self motion duration and distance in rodents
MetadataShow full item record
Spatial orientation and navigation rely on information about landmarks and self-motion cues gained from multi-sensory sources. In this study, we focused on self-motion and examined the capability of rodents to extract and make use of information about own movement, i.e. path integration. Path integration has been investigated in depth in insects and humans. Demonstrations in rodents, however, mostly stem from experiments on heading directionless is known about distance estimation. We introduce a novel behavioural paradigm that allows for probing temporal and spatial contributions to path integration.
