The Klüver-Bucy syndrome is a well known consequence of lesions of the temporal lobe, but the neural mechanisms remain obscure. To elucidate the neurochemical changes in this syndrome, we utilized in vivo microdialysis of amygdala and hypothalamus in two Cebus monkeys (C. apella) before and after bilateral lesions of the temporal pole (TP). Both subjects were housed and observed in a social group when not being dialyzed. Behavioral changes consequent to the TP lesion included early… CONTINUE READING
