Experiments in the laboratory of Roger Sperry showed that section of the corpus callosum blocks the normally strong transfer of information between the two hemispheres of the brain. In some of the papers from Sperry's lab, work by Bykov in Pavlov's lab was cited, since he appeared to have found similar results earlier. At the time, the only source on Bykov's experiment that was easily available was an abstract in a German journal. Although Bykov was the author of the paper, he did not write the abstract. The author of the abstract was Mark Serejski. Recently we obtained a copy of Bykov's original article in Russian, and arranged for it to be translated into English. The full article makes it clear that the abstract was somewhat misleading both in the methods and the results of Bykov's study. Here we present an English translations of Bykov's paper and the Serejski abstract, along with comments on the discrepancies between the two.
