Visual recognition impairment following medial thalamic lesions in monkeys

Aggleton, John Patrick and Mishkin, M. 1983. Visual recognition impairment following medial thalamic lesions in monkeys. Neuropsychologia 21 (3) , pp. 189-197. 10.1016/0028-3932(83)90037-4

Abstract-Monkeys with surgical lesions which removed the medial portions of the medial and anterior thalamic nuclei were markedly impaired on a test of object recognition. The same animals were able to learn visual pattern discriminations and a spatial delayed response task at a normal rate. These findings indicate that lesions in the medial thalamus produce a selective impairment in visual recognition memory in monkeys and, consequently, may provide an experimental model for human “diencephahc amnesia”.
