Hungry rats were trained to report the occurrence and location of brief, unpredictable visual stimuli presented to the left of their heads in 1 of 2 response locations. After training, they received unilateral infusions of 6-hydroxydopamine, depleting dopamine throughout the head of the caudate putamen, either on the left or the right side, that is, either ipsilateral or contralateral to the side on which they were required to respond. Following an ipsilateral lesion there were no impairments… CONTINUE READING
