Exploring the role of the substantia nigra pars reticulata in eye movements.
Experiments that demonstrated a role for the substantia nigra in eye movements have played an important role in our understanding of the function of the basal ganglia in behavior more broadly. In this review we explore more ...
Shifting attention to neurons.
(Trends Cogn Sci, 2010-09)
Spatial and temporal scales of neuronal correlation in visual area V4.
(J Neurosci, 2013-03-20)
The spiking activity of nearby cortical neurons is correlated on both short and long time scales. Understanding this shared variability in firing patterns is critical for appreciating the representation of sensory stimuli ...
Frontal eye field neurons assess visual stability across saccades.
(J Neurosci, 2012-02-22)
The image on the retina may move because the eyes move, or because something in the visual scene moves. The brain is not fooled by this ambiguity. Even as we make saccades, we are able to detect whether visual objects remain ...
Delay activity of saccade-related neurons in the caudal dentate nucleus of the macaque cerebellum.
(J Neurophysiol, 2013-04)
The caudal dentate nucleus (DN) in lateral cerebellum is connected with two visual/oculomotor areas of the cerebrum: the frontal eye field and lateral intraparietal cortex. Many neurons in frontal eye field and ...
Division of labor in frontal eye field neurons during presaccadic remapping of visual receptive fields.
(J Neurophysiol, 2012-10)
Our percept of visual stability across saccadic eye movements may be mediated by presaccadic remapping. Just before a saccade, neurons that remap become visually responsive at a future field (FF), which anticipates the saccade ...
Advances in understanding mechanisms of thalamic relays in cognition and behavior.
(J Neurosci, 2014-11-12)
The main impetus for a mini-symposium on corticothalamic interrelationships was the recent number of studies highlighting the role of the thalamus in aspects of cognition beyond sensory processing. The thalamus contributes ...
Neuronal correlates of metacognition in primate frontal cortex.
Humans are metacognitive: they monitor and control their cognition. Our hypothesis was that neuronal correlates of metacognition reside in the same brain areas responsible for cognition, including frontal cortex. Recent ...
Dynamics of visual receptive fields in the macaque frontal eye field.
(J Neurophysiol, 2015-12)
Neuronal receptive fields (RFs) provide the foundation for understanding systems-level sensory processing. In early visual areas, investigators have mapped RFs in detail using stochastic stimuli and sophisticated analytical ...
Neuronal correlates of visual time perception at brief timescales.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2013-01-22)
Successful interaction with the world depends on accurate perception of the timing of external events. Neurons at early stages of the primate visual system represent time-varying stimuli with high precision. However, it ...
