Description
Cognitive mapping is assumed to be through hippocampus-dependent place learning rather than striatum-dependent response learning. However, we propose that either type of spatial learning, as long as it involves encoding metric relations between locations and reference points, could lead to a cognitive map; furthermore the fewer reference points to specify individual locations, the more accurate a cognitive map of these locations will be. We then demonstrate that participants have more accurate representations of vectors between two locations and of configurations among three locations when locations are individually encoded in terms of a single landmark than when locations are encoded in terms of a boundary. Previous findings show that learning locations relative to a boundary involves stronger place learning and higher hippocampal activation whereas learning relative to a single landmark involves stronger response learning and higher striatal activation. Recognizing this, we provide evidence challenging the cognitive map theory but favouring our proposal.
