Rhesus monkeys were tested on a visual search task in which they had to find and retrieve a peanut from a display of visually similar but inedible objects. The speed with which they did so was measured. Animals in which the superior colliculi or frontal eye-fields had been removed took longer to find the peanut than two operated control groups. Animals with collicular lesions had longer latencies than those with frontal eye-fields removed. These two groups were also tested on a second task, non… CONTINUE READING
