The primary objective of this study is to describe the qualitative and quantitative relationships between head and forelimb movements in intact dogs during the early stage of instrumental learning, and in trained dogs after motor cortex ablations. The acquisition of instrumental reactions includes the stages of training, the correlation of limb and head movements, and the stability of head and limb position. The disturbance of the acquired skill after motor cortex lesions is also discussed in this chapter. The results show that there is an innate coordination of head and forelimb movements in the dog that interfere with the performance of instrumental reactions. This coordination is also displaced in head extension preceding limb flexion.

Keywords:   motor cortex, head movement, forelimb movement, dogs, limb flexion, instrumental reactions
