Formation Of Spatial Representation Of Aggressive And Non-Aggressive Animals In Morris Maze And In Elevated Plus Maze
Aggressive animals are distinctive by higher reproductive ability of remembering in open space where the high
rate of memorization plays the great role. In this particular case in Morris water maze aggressive animals develop better
navigation learning than non aggressive ones. This kind of mental map could be perceived by the rat or not. In this case, this
chart is well perceived by both aggressive animals. The main mechanism of remembering this kind of invisible platform
could be related to the development of proprio-vestibular apparatus. It seems that aggressive animals remember the motion
sequence that enables them to find a target. (praxis or idiopathic strategy). This increases consolidation with spatial memory.
The study of Elevated Plus Maze showed that an aggressive rat, whether it has more or less anxiety, tries to perceive the
environment and select safe condition that is useful to it that is contributed by features that are characterized for
aggressiveness which is manifested by working capacity.
Key words- Aggressive and non-aggressive rats, behavior, Elevated Plus Maze, Morris maze.
