Multiple brain learning sites are needed to calibrate the accuracy of saccadic eye movements. This is true because saccades can be made reactively to visual cues, attentively to visual or auditory cues, or planned in response to memory cues using visual, parietal, and prefrontal cortex, as well as superior colliculus, cerebellum, and reticular formation.(More)

Many important analytic applications depend on the ability to accurately detect or predict the occurrence of key events given a data set of observations. We concentrate on multidimensional data that are highly nongaussian (continuous and/or discrete), noisy and nonlinearly related. We investigate the feasibility of datapattern discovery and event detection(More)
A neural model is developed of the neural circuitry in the reticular formation that is used to generate saccadic eye movements. The model simulates the behavior of identified cell types — such as long-lead burst neurons, short-lead excitatory and inhibitory burst neurons, omnipause neurons, and tonic neurons — under many experimental conditions. Simulated(More)
