MRI Overestimates Excitotoxic Amygdala Lesion Damage in Rhesus Monkeys

Selective, fiber-sparing excitotoxic lesions are a state-of-the-art tool for determining the causal contributions of different brain areas to behavior. For nonhuman primates especially, it is advantageous to keep subjects with high-quality lesions alive and contributing to science for many years. However, this requires the ability to estimate lesion extent… CONTINUE READING
