Three Cynomolgus monkeys (Macaca fascicularis) learned a flavour-visual conditional discrimination problem, in which one of two possible food items was presented at the beginning of each trial, and acted as an instruction cue to signal which of two visually distinct stimulus objects the animal must displace on that trial in order to obtain a further food reward. The task was learned first in light then in dark conditions. Following rhinal cortex ablation the animals were unable to use the… CONTINUE READING
