Hippocampal lesions, species-typical behaviours and anxiety in mice.

Abstract:

The hippocampus is believed to play an important role in spatial cognition and anxiety. Much of the supporting evidence is derived from rat studies. Recent reports on hippocampal lesioned mice also showed impairments in spatial function, but anxiety was not uniformly diminished. There were, however, striking impairments in several "species typical" behaviours; lesioned mice made poorer nests, and hoarded and burrowed less. In the present experiments, mice with excitotoxic hippocampal lesions ...
