Macaca speciosa monkeys were trained to acquire food reinforcement with motor responses that were defined by 4 different tasks. The effects of dorsal column lesions on the speed of these responses were compared for the forelimbs vs. the hindlimbs. Enduring impairments were not seen for any limb when the animal was required to accurately project a limb to different points in space, even with exclusion of visual guidance and with random variation of the start and stop points for each movement… CONTINUE READING
