Single and combined lesions were made to the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN), the superficial layers of the superior colliculus (SC), and the pretectal nuclei (Ptc) prior to conditioning of the nictitating membrane (NM) response in rabbit with a visual conditioned stimulus (CS). Due to technical considerations, lesions of the dorsal LGN were accompanied by lesions of the visual cortex, the only output of the dorsal LGN, in order to render the dorsal LGN nonfunctional. Single lesions to any one… CONTINUE READING
