Five visually mediated behaviors were assessed following ablation of one or both lobes of the optic tectum in goldfish. Three of the behaviors disappeared following tectal ablations: optomotor response (swimming with the stripes in a rotating striped drum), food pellet localization and shadow-induced deceleration of respiration. Two of the behaviors persisted following tectal ablation: optokinetic nystagmus (movement of the eyes with the stripes in a rotating striped drum) and dorsal light… CONTINUE READING
