Abstract:

The research covered deals chiefly with memory, its origin and its control. Removal of the vertical lobe brain leads to an odd reversal of tactile and visual cues. The octopus can learn when stimulus and reward are separated by a 30 second interval. Attempts to prevent learning by puromycin intracranially were not very successful, apparently because of great variation in natural learning rates. This is especially true with the amount of handling required other procedures will be attempted in the future. Author
