The Effect of Anterior Callosal Transection on Learning and retention in the Rhesus Monkey
MetadataShow full item record
The model upon which we base the following investigation is a fairly simple one. It appears that the corpus callosum is a communications center for the two hemispheres of the brain and that interhemispheric communication is an element of learning complex tasks. Due to the large body of evidence indicating that the highest of the cortical functions are located in the frontal lobes, we turned our attention to the genu, or anterior portion.
