Aspects of spatial memory and perception likely combine to support the now well-documented ability of homing pigeons to learn to retrace the same route when homing from familiar locations, leading to the prediction that damage to the HF would result in a diminished ability to repeatedly fly a similar route home. HF-lesioned homing pigeons were repeatedly released from three sites to assess the importance of the hippocampus as pigeons gradually learn a familiar route home guided by familiar landmark and landscape features. As expected, control pigeons displayed increasing fidelity to a familiar route home, and by inference, successful perceptual and memory processing of familiar landmarks/landscape features. By contrast, the impoverished route fidelity of the HF-lesioned pigeons indicated an impaired sensitivity to the same landmark/landscape features.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Casini, Giovanni</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2020-07-29</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Rossino, Maria Grazia</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Bingman, Verner P.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Wikelski, Martin</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2020-08-26T11:17:04Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Casini, Giovanni</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Bingman, Verner P.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Rossino, Maria Grazia</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Importance of the hippocampus for the learning of route fidelity in homing pigeons</dcterms:title> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/50578/1/Gagliardo_2-dkmhjc1dptzo2.pdf"/> <dc:contributor>Gagliardo, Anna</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Pollonara, Enrica</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43615"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/50578"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/50578/1/Gagliardo_2-dkmhjc1dptzo2.pdf"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2020-08-26T11:17:04Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Wikelski, Martin</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Gagliardo, Anna</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43615"/> <dc:creator>Pollonara, Enrica</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
