A screw microdrive for adjustable chronic unit recording in monkeys.
(J Neurosci Methods, 1998-06-01)
A screw microdrive is described that attaches to the grid system used for recording single neurons from brains of awake behaving monkeys. Multiple screwdrives can be mounted on a grid over a single cranial opening. This ...
Effective spread and timecourse of neural inactivation caused by lidocaine injection in monkey cerebral cortex.
(J Neurosci Methods, 1997-06-06)
We studied the effective spread of lidocaine to inactivate neural tissue in the frontal cortex of the rhesus monkey. Injections of 2% lidocaine at 4 microl/min were made while units were recorded 1 or 2 mm away. To inactivate ...
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 ...
Electrically evoked saccades from the dorsomedial frontal cortex and frontal eye fields: a parametric evaluation reveals differences between areas.
(Exp Brain Res, 1997-12)
Using electrical stimulation to evoke saccades from the dorsomedial frontal cortex (DMFC) and frontal eye fields (FEF) of rhesus monkeys, parametric tests were conducted to compare the excitability properties of these regions. ...
Frontal eye field neurons orthodromically activated from the superior colliculus.
(J Neurophysiol, 1998-12)
Frontal eye field neurons orthodromically activated from the superior colliculus. J. Neurophysiol. 80: 3331-3333, 1998. Anatomical studies have shown that the frontal eye field (FEF) and superior colliculus (SC) of monkeys ...
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 ...
