Abstract

Relationships between dorsal hippocampal EEG and behavior were studied in the rat. Walking etc. and lever pressing were associated with significantly more hippocampal RSA than operant licking, normal drinking, polydipsic drinking, grooming, saliva spreading and holding still. The results suggested that hippocampal EEG is related to the form of response, rather than to perceptual or sensory processes or to central integrative processes. Furthermore, the results suggested that hippocampal EEG is not related to the operant role of response or to relative intensities of response.
