Reversible inactivation of macaque frontal eye field.
(Exp Brain Res, 1997-09)
The macaque frontal eye field (FEF) is involved in the generation of saccadic eye movements and fixations. To better understand the role of the FEF, we reversibly inactivated a portion of it while a monkey made saccades ...
Visual perception and corollary discharge.
Perception depends not only on sensory input but also on the state of the brain receiving that input. A classic example is perception of a stable visual world in spite of the saccadic eye movements that shift the images ...
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 ...
Metacognition in monkeys during an oculomotor task.
(J Exp Psychol Learn Mem Cogn, 2011-03)
This study investigated whether rhesus monkeys show evidence of metacognition in a reduced, visual oculomotor task that is particularly suitable for use in fMRI and electrophysiology. The 2-stage task involved punctate visual ...
Activity of neurons in monkey globus pallidus during oculomotor behavior compared with that in substantia nigra pars reticulata.
(J Neurophysiol, 2010-04)
The basal ganglia are a subcortical assembly of nuclei involved in many aspects of behavior. Three of the nuclei have high firing rates and inhibitory influences: the substantia nigra pars reticulata (SNr), globus pallidus ...
