Degraded transfer of memories between the visual hemifields in normal macaques revealed by a novel infrared eyetracking method without head fixation.
Electrophysiological evidence in macaque monkeys indicates that when the monkey views a visual scene with objects present in both visual hemifields, the cells of the temporal lobe respond to objects in the contralateral field, but are hardly affected by objects in the ipsilateral field. If visual memories are stored in the temporal lobes, as is generally believed, then this implies that the transfer of visual object memories from one hemifield to the other should either fail or at least suffe...Expand abstract
