The Behavior of the Laboratory Rat

Robert J. Sutherland

Oxford University Press

This chapter seeks to provide a kind of thinking about behavioral processes in rats that is characteristic of a cognitive approach and to provide some examples of experimental paradigms that have been used with some success to probe the nature of the rat's representations of its environment and its own actions. The examples are drawn mainly from recent work on attentional and memory processes, two of the traditional subject matters in cognitive science.

Keywords:   laboratory rats, cognition, behavioral processes, cognitive process, attention, memory
