About This Event


Event Description:

In the experiment, the rat walked along the path. After resting, the rat moved along the same path again, but when it approached the end of the path, it received a slight shock. After resting again, it was back on track. As he neared the end of the track where it had previously experienced the shock, this time the rat stopped and turned back. Before the rat first made its way to the path, probes were inserted into its hippocampus to record electrical signals that could track patterns associated with each location, including one where the rat received a slight shock. Since the animal turned back and bypassed the location where it had been shocked, it can be assumed that the brain remembered the location of the horrific event, that is, the location on the path where the rat had been shocked.
