Abstract : Experiments were carried out in order to investigate the modifications of the following cortical evoked responses during avoidance conditioning experiments as well as during spontaneous EEG arousel in the monkey: (1) cortical responses evoked by single electrical stimuli to specific thalamic nuclei in the sensory-motor, frontal and visual areas, (2) cortical responses evoked in the sensory-motor cortex by peripheral stimuli (single shocks to the hand), and (3) cortical responses evoked by repetitive thalamic stimulation (augmenting responses) to the specific thalamic nuclei in the sensory-motor and visual areas.
