Do rats learn a maze by choosing the corridors that lead to a reward, or do they generate an internal map of the maze even without a reward.
Multiple T-mazes were used to answer the question of response and cognitive learning. The debate was resolved by Nazis – who used human models here at this green maze. Those who survived had learned to generate a cognitive map of the maze and reach the food reward points quicker.
Tord and Lumbert hope to acquire it. They plan to use it for testing some new drugs for curing Alzheimer’s-disease – with human volunteers.
Thanks for the prompt Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. SHALOM.
