A pathway in primate brain for internal monitoring of movements.
It is essential to keep track of the movements we make, and one way to do that is to monitor correlates, or corollary discharges, of neuronal movement commands. We hypothesized that a previously identified pathway from brainstem ...
What the brain stem tells the frontal cortex. I. Oculomotor signals sent from superior colliculus to frontal eye field via mediodorsal thalamus.
(J Neurophysiol, 2004-03)
Neuronal processing in cerebral cortex and signal transmission from cortex to brain stem have been studied extensively, but little is known about the numerous feedback pathways that ascend from brain stem to cortex. In this ...
Frontal eye field neurons with spatial representations predicted by their subcortical input.
(J Neurosci, 2009-04-22)
The frontal eye field (FEF) is a cortical structure involved in cognitive aspects of eye movement control. Neurons in the FEF, as in most of cerebral cortex, primarily represent contralateral space. They fire for visual ...
Multielectrode evidence for spreading activity across the superior colliculus movement map.
(J Neurophysiol, 2000-07)
The monkey superior colliculus (SC) has maps for both visual input and movement output in the superficial and intermediate layers, respectively, and activity on these maps is generally related to visual stimuli only in one ...
Drivers from the deep: the contribution of collicular input to thalamocortical processing.
(Prog Brain Res, 2005)
A traditional view of the thalamus is that it is a relay station which receives sensory input and conveys this information to cortex. This sensory input determines most of the properties of first order thalamic neurons, ...
