Abstract

TORREALBA, FERNANDO  and  VALDES, JOSÉ LUIS. The parietal association cortex of the rat. Biol. Res. [online]. 2008, vol.41, n.4, pp.369-377. ISSN 0716-9760.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-97602008000400002.

Spatial cognition is a complex higher function in mammals and is involved in a variety of tasks that can be explored in the laboratory. In this review we will discuss the role of the posterior parietal/anteromedial cortex of rodents, also known as the parietal association cortex, and the hippocampal formation in spatial navigation. We will also discuss other higher associational functions of the posterior parietal/anteromedial cortex as they relate to Dr. Pinto-Hamuy's contribution to understanding behavioral functions.

Keywords : Association cortex; spatial navigation; visual cortex.
