Movement is necessary for landmark-based navigation

BELGIAN JOURNAL OF ZOOLOGY, 134(1):61-63.

The experiments reported here were designed to find out whether mice are capable of homing by visual extra-arena landmarks, W hen deprived of visual access to such landmarks. Mice were placed in a circular arena, where they could view the experimental room only from a peripheral nest and the centre of the arena, while they could not access the visual cues when moving in-between. This resulted in poor homing in mice. The conclusion drawn is that mice need to view visual,cues while moving for their landmark-based navigation.
