  • 1 November 1958
Abstract By plotting his own scotomas at regular intervals during migraine attacks, Lashley came to the conclusion that a disturbance was advancing at about 3 mm/min. over the visual cortex. TheExpand

Plasticity of the medial prefrontal cortex: Facilitated acquisition of intracranial self-stimulation by pretraining stimulation
Prior electrical stimulation of the medial prefrontal cortex MFC facilitated the subsequent acquisition of intracranial self-stimulation (ICSS) from the same MFC electrode site. Stimulations thatExpand

A brief history of the Hebbian learning rule.
Abstract Hebb included a version of his neural postulate of learning in his MA thesis (1932). It seems to be a translation of Pavlovian conditioning into neural terms. The version that appears in hisExpand
