    P Nemec
    Department of Zoology, Charles University, CZ 128 44 Prague, Czech Republic
    Science 294:366-8. 2001
    ..These neurons are directionally selective and organized within a discrete sublayer. Our results constitute evidence for the involvement of a specific mammalian brain structure in magnetoreception...

    Pavel Nemec
    Department of Zoology, Charles University, Vinicna 7, CZ 128 44 Praha 2, Czech Republic
    Eur J Neurosci 20:757-68. 2004
    ..Thus, the visual system of C. anselli is much better developed than that of the blind mole-rat Spalax ehrenbergi. We suggest that Cryptomys anselli has retained basic visual capabilities...
  3. ncbi request reprint Towards the neural basis of magnetoreception: a neuroanatomical approach
    Pavel Nemec
    Department of Zoology, Charles University, Vinicna 7, Praha 2, 12844 Czech Republic
    Naturwissenschaften 92:151-7. 2005
    ..Limitations and pitfalls of the proposed approach are also discussed...
  4. doi request reprint The visual system in subterranean African mole-rats (Rodentia, Bathyergidae): retina, subcortical visual nuclei and primary visual cortex
    Pavel Nemec
    Department of Zoology, Charles University, Vinicna 7, CZ 128 44 Praha 2, Czech Republic
    Brain Res Bull 75:356-64. 2008
    ..Residual vision may enable subterranean mammals to localize breaches in the burrows that let in light thus providing a cue to enable mole-rats to reseal such entry points and to prevent entry of predators...

    Tomás Burger
    Department of Zoology, Faculty of Science Charles University in Prague, Vinicna 7, CZ 12844 Praha 2, Czech Republic
    J R Soc Interface 7:1275-92. 2010
    ..Thus, magnetic information may be integrated with multimodal sensory and motor information into a common spatial representation of allocentric space within this circuit...

    Ludmila Oliveriusová
    Department of Zoology, Faculty of Science, University of South Bohemia, Branisovska 31, 370 05, Ceske Budejovice, Czech Republic
    Naturwissenschaften 101:557-63. 2014
    ..These findings suggest that bank voles are well suited for future studies investigating the adaptive significance and mechanisms of magnetic orientation in epigeic rodents. ..

    Ludmila Oliveriusová
    Department of Zoology, Faculty of Science, University of South Bohemia, CZ 370 05 Ceske Budejovice, Czech Republic
    J Exp Biol 215:3649-54. 2012
    ..However, the spontaneous directional preference is not common and may be either innate (but species-specific) or learned. We propose an experiment that should be performed to distinguish between these two alternatives...

    Eur J Neurosci 19:1545-58. 2004
