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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Brain circuits for the internal monitoring of movements.
(Annu Rev Neurosci, 2008)
Each movement we make activates our own sensory receptors, thus causing a problem for the brain: the spurious, movement-related sensations must be discriminated from the sensory inputs that really matter, those representing ...
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, ...
The frontal eye field as a prediction map.
(Prog Brain Res, 2008)
Predictive processes are widespread in the motor and sensory areas of the primate brain. They enable rapid computations despite processing delays and assist in resolving noisy, ambiguous input. Here we propose that the frontal ...
