IN 1937 Kliiver and Bucy’ described some behavior changes which represent “the most striking behavior changes ever produced in animals” as a result of bilateral operative removal of the temporal lobes, including most of the uncus and hippocampus in the Macacus rhesus. These behavior changes consisted of 1) “psychic blindness” or “visual agnosia;” 2) strong oral tendencies; 3) the socalled “hypermetamorphosis” or excessive tendency to attend and react to every visual stimulus; 4 ) considerable… 
Klüver, Bucy, and the Klüver-Bucy Syndome
ABSTRACT.While exploring the effects of mescaline in primates, Kluver and Bucy fortuitously discovered that placidity occurred after temporal lobectomy in the ferocious female rhesus monkey,
The neuropsychology of the Klüver-Bucy syndrome in children.
Behavioral changes following discrete lesions of temporal lobe structures
TLDR
The conflicting behavioral changes reported from the various temporal lobe ablation studies may be a result of varying degrees of damage to the temporal lobe structures and a program of discrete electrocoagulation and stimulation of these individual structures is necessary.
Klüver-Bucy-Syndrom und Greifreflexe (oral, cheiral, podal) nach schwerer Hirnkontusion
SummaryA 16-year-old physically and mentally retarded male developed a complete Klüver-Bucy syndrome similar to that demonstrated in animal experiments and characterized by so-called psychic
[Behavioral changes after partial damage of limbic system--effects of unilateral lesion of amygdala in cats (author's transl)].
TLDR
The present finding implies that individual differences in sexual behavior appear to depend on the neural basis of the amygdala in adult cats, supporting an assumption that the amygdala is a controlling center of sexual and emotional behavior which is one of the principal role of the limbic system.
Cerebral birth anoxia, seizures and Kluver-Bucy syndrome: some observations
TLDR
It appears that KBS may be more common than was suspected previously in children of cerebral birth anoxia consequent to hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, though it may manifest with a wide clinical spectrum, hyperorality is its commonest constituent.
Sanger Brown and Edward Schäfer before Heinrich Klüver and Paul Bucy: their observations on bilateral temporal lobe ablations.
TLDR
In the decades following the pivotal work of Klüver and Bucy in the late 1930s, investigators have elaborated the full components of the clinical syndrome and the extent of their resections.
Effects of selective serotonin re‐uptake inhibitors on behavior in Klüver–Bucy syndrome during childhood
TLDR
A patient with sequelae of neonatal Herpes simplex encephalitis who had childhood Klüver–Bucy syndrome is reported, and selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRI) affected the social behavior of this patient.
Klinische Beobachtungen zum Klüver-Bucy-Syndrom
SummaryPatients with Klüver-Bucy syndromes in neuropsychiatric clinics are rare. 5 cases are described. 4 of these appeared following brain concussion and partially corresponded with the changes in

TLDR
While it has long been known that visceral symptoms such as pallor, salivation and epigastric distress may herald or accompany an epileptic seizure, these symptoms cannot be regarded as having any localizing value unless a focal brain lesion is proved to be their cause.
Surgical therapy of temporal lobe seizures.
TLDR
An analysis of the results of surgical therapy of patients who suffered from temporal lobe seizures over a 10 year period which ended in April 1949 finds that new knowledge has been gained of the function of the human temporal cortex and a new field of surgical treatment presents itself.
A PROPOSED MECHANISM OF EMOTION
TLDR
The following discussion presents some anatomic, clinical and experimental data dealing with the hypothalamus, the gyrus cinguli, the hippocampus and their interconnections, which are proposed as representing theoretically the anatomic basis of the emotions.
