Abstract

Exploration of a novel environment involves the establishment of a "home base" which serves as a reference point for movements. Home base establishment and exploratory movements were disrupted in otoconia-deficient mice in darkness, but not in light. Otolith signals thus contribute to the organization of exploratory movements in non-visual environments.
