The behavioral effects of lesions of the prelimbic cortex (PL), mediodorsal nucleus of the thalamus (MD), and anterior thalamic nuclei (ANT) were investigated in 2 attentional tasks in rats: the 5-choice serial reaction time task and a vigilance task. Although there was no lesion effect on accuracy in the 5-choice task, PL lesions enhanced perseverative… CONTINUE READING
