[The effect of cholinergic substances on the mechanisms of visual recognition in monkeys].

[Article in Russian]


In monkeys (Macaca mulatta) instrumental reflex was elaborated with differentiation of black-and-white and colour visual stimuli in condition of systemic administration of pharmacological preparations selectively influencing the functional state of cholinergic brain structures. Differentiation of black-and-white and colour stimuli is not disturbed by atropine (0.1 mg/kg) and amizile (up to 1.5 mg/kg) injections; at greater doses frustration of the instrumental reflex takes place. Differentiation of black-and-white and colour stimuli is disturbed at injection of various doses of antidepressant phthoracizine: 5 mg/kg and 7 mg/kg, respectively. These disturbances are restored by the injection of definite doses of galantamine; for correction of colour differentiation a greater dose is required. The obtained data point to differences in neurophysiological and neurochemical processes responsible for black-and-white and colour vision.
