Signal transformations from cerebral cortex to superior colliculus for the generation of saccades.
(Vision Res, 2001)
The ability of primates to make rapid and accurate saccadic eye movements for exploring the natural world is based on a neuronal system in the brain that has been studied extensively and is known to include multiple brain ...
Do smokers respond to health shocks?
(Review of Economics and Statistics, 2001-11-01)
This paper reports the first effort to use data to evaluate how new information, acquired through exogenous health shocks, affects people's longevity expectations. We find that smokers react differently to health shocks ...
Frontal eye field sends delay activity related to movement, memory, and vision to the superior colliculus.
(J Neurophysiol, 2001-04)
Many neurons within prefrontal cortex exhibit a tonic discharge between visual stimulation and motor response. This delay activity may contribute to movement, memory, and vision. We studied delay activity sent from the frontal ...
A subcortical source of visual input to the frontal eye field
(Journal of Vision, 2001-12-01)
Many neurons in the frontal eye field (FEF) exhibit visual responses and are thought to play important roles in visuosaccadic behavior. The FEF, however, is far removed from striate cortex. Where do the FEF's visual signals ...
Longevity expectations and death: Can people predict their own demise?
