Ablations and local intracerebral infusions were used to determine the role of rat temporal association cortex (area Te2) in object recognition memory, so that this role might be compared with that of the adjacent perirhinal cortex (PRH). Bilateral lesions of Te2 impaired recognition memory measured by preferential exploration of a novel rather than a(More)
The introduction of a brief temporal gap between the disappearance of the initial fixation point and the presentation of a peripheral target leads to a general reduction in saccadic reaction times (SRTs), known as the gap effect. Moreover, extremely short latency express saccades frequently occur in this paradigm. Disorders of the prefrontal cortex (PFC)(More)
A suppressive surround modulates the responsiveness of cells in the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN), but we know nothing of its spatial structure or the way in which it combines signals arising from different locations. It is generally assumed that suppressive signals are either uniformly distributed or balanced in opposing regions outside the receptive(More)
Previous work has shown that immunohistochemical imaging of Fos protein is a reliable marker for changes in activity related to recognition memory in the perirhinal (PRH) cortex of the medial temporal lobe; however, whether PRH Fos expression is necessary for recognition memory had not been established. To investigate this potential requirement, antisense(More)
