The hippocampus plays an important role in spatial and non-spatial episodic memory. Using DTI, a micro-structural probe sensitive to rapid neuroplasticity, and the Morris water maze, we investigated spatial preference for place and time in the hippocampus as revealed by changes in diffusion indices induced by learning of a specific location in the maze and the overall training experience. We were able to find a system-level mapping of space and time in the rat hippocampus.
