Anterior thalamic nuclei (ATN) lesions impaired biconditional learning when the task used distal spatial cues, but spared contextual biconditional learning (see graph). ATN lesions did not stop discrimination learning (go/no-go) between two locations approached from a constant direction, but still impaired acquisition of a spatial biconditional task when those same places determined the correct choice. These ATN lesion deficits mirror those seen after hippocampal lesions in rats.
