This chapter describes the behavioral deficits observed following lesions of the primary visual cortex in both mature and infant macaque monkeys. Overall, the consequences of such lesions are far more severe in adulthood than during development. The chapter also presents anatomical evidence that alterations to the thalamocortical pathways may explain the greater behavioral abilities identified following visual cortex lesions incurred during development, but not maturity.

Keywords:   macaque monkeys, primary visual cortex, cortical lesions, behavioral defects
