Exploratory behavior is known to be complex and dynamic, due to the instability of the environment and the rapid interactions between the organism and the world surrounding it. We present a model of spatial exploration, which is based on those interactions which creates attraction and repulsion forces. The model describes a way in which these forces are constructed (or summed) from low level elements, external (environmental) and internal (neural-physiological), that in turn determine the structure of this behavior. In addition we describe a simulation of rats open field exploratory behavior, based on the explained model.
