The lateral intraparietal area (LIP) of the macaque is believed to play a role in the allocation of attention and the plan to make saccadic eye movements. Many studies have shown that LIP neurons generally encode the static spatial location demarked by the receptive field (RF). LIP neurons might also provide information about the features of visual stimuli(More)
In visual search, inefficient performance of human observers is typically characterized by a steady increase in reaction time with the number of array elements-the so-called set-size effect. In general, set-size effects are taken to indicate that processing of the array elements depends on limited-capacity resources, that is, it involves attention.(More)
Neurons in cortical sensory areas respond selectively to sensory stimuli, and the preferred stimulus typically varies among neurons so as to continuously span the sensory space. However, some neurons reflect sensory features that are learned or task dependent. For example, neurons in the lateral intraparietal area (LIP) reflect learned associations between(More)
