Abstract : The primary purpose of the project reported here was to develop a test for monkeys that captured the visual, oculomotor, and cognitive capabilities analogous to those required of field personnel engaged in searching for hidden targets. The result was the Visual Search test described below. This report details the experiments which measured the effects of several cholino-specific agents (atropine, benactyzine, TMB4, physostigmine and TAB) on the visual and oculomotor competence of rhesus monkeys engaged in visual search.
