Seven monkeys learned new object-reward associations and scene problems and were overtrained on 100 problems of each type. Four monkeys received crossed lesions of the medial forebrain bundle (MFB) and inferior temporal cortex, with the later addition of a fornix section ipsilateral to the MFB lesion. The remaining 3 monkeys received bilateral perirhinal cortex ablation. Disconnection of the MFB from the inferior temporal cortex impaired postoperative new learning, but the retrieval of problems… CONTINUE READING
