Unformatted text preview: 3. To examine spatial learning, and be able to give examples of species, from insects to mammals with extraordinary abilities at spatial memories. To learn of certain important brain correlates of these large spatial memories. 4. To understand a simple example of non-associative learning in the marine slug, Aplysia, and its neural basis. 5. To explore a neural circuit in the hippocampus that appears to be involved in spatial learning, and understand the cellular basis of learning as a change in synaptic strength as a result of experience. Study Questions 1. Long term potentiation (LTP) is thought to be one important mechanism for forming memories of sensory events. Describe the mechanism of LTP. 2. Some types of learning appear to be restricted to a certain time period during development. Give an example of this type of learning. 3. Why is food aversion learning unusual?...
