About this book

A review of behavioural neurosciences in an ecological context, covering both theories and experimental procedures. Attention is placed on the hippocampus and its relation to spatial learning in different species, such as food-storing birds, homing pigeons, kangaroo rats and laboratory rodents. Various methodological chapters deal with measurements of behavioural events and telemetry, exploiting the perspectives of miniaturization of data loggers.


Part I: Brain, Behaviour, Ontogeny and Evolution. Historical and evolutionary aspects of vertebrate brain development. Nervous system organisation of Cephalopods. Part II: Bird Studies. Learning and memory of mammals and birds in laboratory and natural conditions. Neurobiology of homing pigeon navigation. Part III: Hippocampus - A Hot Issue. Spatial memory and hippocampal morphology in food-storing birds and mammals. Part IV: Behavioral Brain Research, Methodology and Telemetry. Telemetric measurement of physiological parameters in laboratory and field conditions. Ethological assessments of behaviour and recent software. (Part contents).
