Abstract : Monkeys were tested on each of eight visual acuity problems presented in order of increasing difficulty. The results of the study reflected differences between chronic focal-head irradiated monkeys and normal monkeys with respect to performance on these problems. Most efficient performance was shown by the control animals, intermediate efficiency of performance by the animals with previous focal-head irradiation of the posterior association areas, and least proficient performance by the animals with previous focal-head irradiation of the frontal association areas.
