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)
Corollary discharge circuits in the primate brain.
(Curr Opin Neurobiol, 2008-12)
Movements are necessary to engage the world, but every movement results in sensorimotor ambiguity. Self-movements cause changes to sensory inflow as well as changes in the positions of objects relative to motor effectors ...
Diminishment of respiratory sinus arrhythmia foreshadows doxorubicin-induced cardiomyopathy.
BACKGROUND: The development of a microcomputer-based device permits quick, simple, and noninvasive quantification of the respiratory sinus arrhythmia (RSA) during quiet breathing. METHODS AND RESULTS: We prospectively and ...
Eye fields in the frontal lobes of primates.
(Brain Res Brain Res Rev, 2000-04)
Two eye fields have been identified in the frontal lobes of primates: one is situated dorsomedially within the frontal cortex and will be referred to as the eye field within the dorsomedial frontal cortex (DMFC); the other ...
Visual continuity across saccades is influenced by expectations.
(J Vis, 2016)
As we make saccades, the image on each retina is displaced, yet our visual perception is uninterrupted. This is commonly referred to as transsaccadic perceptual stability, but such a description is inadequate. Some visual ...
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 ...
Chaos in percepts?
(Biol Cybern, 1994)
Multistability in perceptual tasks has suggested that the mechanisms underlying our percepts might be modeled as nonlinear, deterministic systems that exhibit chaotic behavior. We present evidence supporting this view, obtaining ...
The role of the thalamus in motor control.
(Curr Opin Neurobiol, 2003-12)
Two characteristics of the thalamus--its apparently simple relay function and its daunting multinuclear structure--have been customarily viewed as good reasons to study something else. Yet, now that many other brain regions ...
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 ...
