Monkeys were trained preoperatively on a one-trial learning task in which they were required to associate in memory a novel object and the place in which it had just appeared. After learning the task to a level of 80% correct responses, they received bilateral ablations of either the hippocampal formation or the amygdaloid complex. The monkeys with(More)
Performance on an object recognition test was assessed in monkeys with transections of either the fornix, the amygdalofugal pathways, or both. Whereas separate transection of the two pathways produced only small and unreliable effects, their combined transection produced a severe deficit. Comparison with the results of a previous study (Mishkin 1978)(More)
SUMMARY: In peri-urban areas in low-income countries, conventional centralized approaches to wastewater management have generally failed to address the needs of communities for the collection and disposal of domestic waste-water and faecal sludges from on-site sanitation. There are opportunities for implementing wastewater management systems based on a(More)
The effects of atropine sulfate (ATS) and atropine methyl nitrate (ATM) on the conditional discrimination behavior of rats were investigated in eight-hour experimental sessions. Responding of rats was reinforced on either a lighted or a darkened lever depending on whether lights over both levers had been on during the preceding sample portion of the trial.(More)
Four experiments examined the effects of similarity between the sample and an interpolated stimulus in a modified delayed-matching-to-sample (DMTS) paradigm. The basis trial sequence was as follows: (a) a sample was presented, and the response to it was either rewarded or nonrewarded, (b) an interpolated stimulus was presented, and the response to it was(More)
