Activation of locations in working memory in cats.

Author information

Université Laval, Québec, Canada. sonia/


Cats saw an object appear and disappear at two successive locations; the movement of the object from one location to the other was not perceived but was indicated by indirect cues and the two disappearances were separated by a 0-sec or a 20-sec interval. Performance was poorer with the 0-sec than with the 20-sec interval. With the 0-sec interval, the percentages of search attempts made at the object's initial and final hiding locations did not differ whereas with the 20-sec interval, more search attempts were made at the final than at the initial location. These results provide additional support to Goulet, Doré and Rousseau's (1994) interpretation of cats' search behaviour in terms of activation of spatial locations in working memory.
