Activity was recorded from 351 neurons in the head of the caudate nucleus (CD) of monkeys during an operant feeding task consisting of: (1) food or non-food presentation (P); (2) bar pressing (B); and (3) food acquisition and ingestion (I). Of 45 neurons which responded in the P phase and were tested systematically, 27 responded to visual presentation of both food and non-food (non-specific response), and 18 responded to food presentation only (food specific response). The magnitude of food… CONTINUE READING
