Look away: the anti-saccade task and the voluntary control of eye movement
The anti-saccade task has emerged as an important task for investigating the flexible control that we have over behaviour. In this task, participants must suppress the reflexive urge to look at aExpand

Saccade-related activity in monkey superior colliculus. I. Characteristics of burst and buildup cells.
1. In the monkey superior colliculus (SC), the activity of most saccade-related neurons studied so far consists of a burst of activity in a population of cells at one place on the SC movement map. InExpand

Neuronal Correlates for Preparatory Set Associated with Pro-Saccades and Anti-Saccades in the Primate Frontal Eye Field
Diversity in behavioral responses to sensory stimuli has been attributed to variations in preparatory set. Variability in oculomotor responses toward identical visual stimuli has been wellExpand

A Model of Saccade Initiation Based on the Competitive Integration of Exogenous and Endogenous Signals in the Superior Colliculus
Significant advances in cognitive neuroscience can be achieved by combining techniques used to measure behavior and brain activity with neural modeling. Here we apply this approach to the initiationExpand

Fixation cells in monkey superior colliculus. I. Characteristics of cell discharge.
1. We studied the role of the superior colliculus (SC) in the control of visual fixation by recording from cells in the rostral pole of the SC in awake monkeys that were trained to perform fixationExpand

Neuronal Activity in Monkey Superior Colliculus Related to the Initiation of Saccadic Eye Movements
The introduction of a temporal gap between the disappearance of an initially fixated target and the appearance of an eccentric saccadic target results in a general reduction of saccadic reactionExpand

Maturation of Widely Distributed Brain Function Subserves Cognitive Development
Cognitive and brain maturational changes continue throughout late childhood and adolescence. During this time, increasing cognitive control over behavior enhances the voluntary suppression ofExpand

Age-related performance of human subjects on saccadic eye movement tasks
Abstract We measured saccadic eye movements in 168 normal human subjects, ranging in age from 5 to 79 years, to determine age-related changes in saccadic task performance. Subjects were instructed toExpand

Fixation cells in monkey superior colliculus. II. Reversible activation and deactivation.
1. We tested the hypothesis that a subset of neurons, which we have referred to as fixation cells, located within the rostral pole of the monkey superior colliculus (SC) controls the generation ofExpand

Role of Primate Superior Colliculus in Preparation and Execution of Anti-Saccades and Pro-Saccades
We investigated how the brain switches between the preparation of a movement where a stimulus is the target of the movement, and a movement where a stimulus serves as a landmark for an instructedExpand
