About this book

The aim of this book is two-fold: firstly to examine the most noteworthy studies (in laboratory settings) which have contributed during the last five decades to a better understanding of animal spatial representations and secondly, to present a realistic picture of cognitive maps.


Contents

The historical background to the studies of animal spatial cognition - the concept of a cognitive map; exploration and spatial knowledge; the classical experimental paradigms; the plasticity of spatial representations - shortcuts and detours; properties of spatial representations - theoretical models of spatial processing at the psychological level; the hippocampus and spatial processing; the other structures involved in spatial processing; general models of distributed memory; conclusion - a picture of animal spatial representation at the psychological and brain levels.
