  • Neurotoxic lesions of the amygdala did not affect the postoperative acquisition of a nonspatial test of object recognition (delayed nonmatching to sample) even when retention delays were increased from 0 s to 20 or 60 s, or when test stimuli were deliberately repeated within a session. Although these amygdaloid lesions did not alter forced-choice spatial alternation, they slightly increased neophobic responses to novel foods and environments. In contrast, combined amygdalohippocampal (A + H… CONTINUE READING
