Role of the dorsal prestriate cortex in visuospatial configural discrimination by monkeys.
Cynomolgus monkeys (Macaca fascicularis) learned a series of visuospatial configural discriminations in which particular discriminative stimulus objects were rewarded only in particular spatial locations. For example, object X was rewarded if it was on the left but not if it was on the right. After ablation of part of the dorsal prestriate cortex they were impaired in learning discriminations of this kind. The same animals were not impaired in learning visual object discriminations in which s...Expand abstract
