There are multiple distinct regions, or eye fields, in the cerebral cortex that contribute directly to the initiation and control of voluntary eye movements. We concentrate on six of these: the frontal eye field, parietal eye field, supplementary eye field, middle superior temporal area, prefrontal eye field, and area 7 m (precuneus in humans). In each of(More)
1. The locations and connections of the smooth and saccadic eye movement subregions of the frontal eye field (FEFsem and FEFsac, respectively) were investigated in seven hemispheres of five Cebus monkeys. The supplementary eye field was also mapped in seven hemispheres and the hand/arm regions of the dorsal and ventral premotor areas were localized in five(More)
1. Intracortical microstimulation was used to localize and define the smooth and saccadic eye movement subregions of the frontal eye field (FEF) and the supplementary eye field (SEF) in nine hemispheres of six Cebus apella monkeys and to map the hand/arm areas in the dorsal premotor area and other adjacent areas in five hemispheres of three C. apella(More)
1. Intracortical microstimulation was used to map the supplementary eye field (SEF) in eight hemispheres of five Cebus apella monkeys. Monkeys were immobilized during experiments with Telazol (tiletamine HCl and zolazepam HCl), a dissociative anesthetic agent that was demonstrated to have no significant effect on microstimulation-induced eye movement(More)
