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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
