Unilateral removal of the telencephalon in the leopard frog, Rana pipiens, produces a contralateral deficit in visual prey orienting behavior [Patton and Grobstein, 1997]. In mammals, such deficits are most commonly associated with damage to the isocortex, a pallial derived structure. In contrast, we here report that in leopard frogs, lesions that remove substantial areas of one telencephalic lobe, including virtually the entire pallium, have no discernible effect on visual orienting behavior… CONTINUE READING
