After learning a vertical/horizontal visual discrimination with one eye rats were tested on the same or the reverse discrimination with the second eye. Positive but imperfect savings were found in transfer rats and zero savings in reversal rats. However, there were no differences between the savings scores of normal rats and rats with section of the corpus callosum. When the first eye was subsequently retested, the normal rats which had learned the reverse discrimination with the second eye… CONTINUE READING
