The effects of hippocampectomy on performance by rats of a running recognition task using long lists of non-spatial items.

Abstract:

Unoperated rats, or rats with cortical control lesions or hippocampal aspiration lesions, were trained on a non-spatial delayed non-matching-to-sample task. Once the non-matching rule had been learned, the task was modified so as to assess list memory, with list lengths of up to 32 items. Hippocampectomy induced a significant drop in choice accuracy, that was independent of list length; nonetheless, hippocampectomised rats still performed at better than chance levels. The cortical control les...
