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 ...
Influence of the thalamus on spatial visual processing in frontal cortex.
Each of our movements activates our own sensory receptors, and therefore keeping track of self-movement is a necessary part of analysing sensory input. One way in which the brain keeps track of self-movement is by monitoring ...
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 ...
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, ...
Identifying corollary discharges for movement in the primate brain.
(Prog Brain Res, 2004)
The brain keeps track of the movements it makes so as to process sensory input accurately and coordinate complex movements gracefully. In this chapter we review the brain's strategies for keeping track of fast, saccadic ...
