Bilateral, N-methyl-D-aspartate-induced lesions of the basolateral region of the amygdaloid complex in male rats resulted in a marked decrease in instrumental responses maintained by a visual conditioned reinforcer in a paradigm in which sexual reinforcement was presented under a second-order schedule. There were no effects of lesions of the amygdala on the unconditioned sexual behaviour of the males, i.e. on behaviour elicited by primary reinforcers. Infusion of D-amphetamine bilaterally into… CONTINUE READING
