Eight crows were taught to discriminate overlapping pairs of visual stimuli (A+ B-, B+ C-, C+ D-, and D+ E-). For 4 birds, the stimuli were colored cards with a circle of the same color on the reverse side whose diameter decreased from A to E (ordered feedback group). These circles were made available for comparison to potentially help the crows order the(More)

Monoamines, which participate in synaptic transmission as transmitters, also accomplish the modulation of neuronal activity. The role of serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine--5-HT) was investigated in 8 to 14-day-old kittens by means of iontophoretic application onto neurones of the somatosensory cerebral cortex. The most typical response was the inhibition of(More)
