The primate amygdala and reinforcement: a dissociation between rule-based and associatively-mediated memory revealed in neuronal activity.

Abstract

To investigate the role of the primate amygdala in stimulus-reinforcement association learning, the activity of single amygdala neurons was recorded in macaques during two memory tasks. In a visual discrimination task, a population of neurons (17/659) was analyzed which responded differentially to a visual stimulus which always indicated that the primary… (More)
