Impaired discrimination following polarisation of the striate cortex

Abstract

Two rhesus monkeys were trained to solve a problem involving the recognition of tachistoscopically presented objects. Performance at this task was impaired by the passage of surface-positive polarising currents through the striate cortex: the impairment persisted after current was turned off, decaying in a reasonably exponential manner with a time constant… (More)
