A typical CNV paradigm, with food as reward, evokes in the squirrel monkey's post-arcuate and post-central cortices both M-waves in response to the cues and what appears to be a CNV in the interstimulus interval. Both wave forms appear to be generated locally in cortex and to be more closely related temporally to the cues than to the animal's behavioral response. The CNV, like the M-wave, appears to reflect the animal's level of interest in obtaining the reward. It is smaller when the animal… CONTINUE READING
