Lesions involving the intralaminar thalamic nuclei have been associated with impairments in working memory and intentional motor function in human clinical cases and animal models of amnesia. The intralaminar nuclei have afferent and efferent connections related to striatum. To test whether disruption of striatal function can account for impairments produced by intralaminar lesions, we investigated the effects of striatal lesions on two tasks known to be impaired by intralaminar damage in the… CONTINUE READING
