The frontal eye field (FEF) participates in selecting the location of behaviorally relevant stimuli for guiding attention and eye movements. We simultaneously recorded local field potentials (LFPs) and spiking activity in the FEF of monkeys performing memory-guided saccade and covert visual search tasks. We compared visual latencies and the time course of(More)
Neuronal activity in the frontal eye field (FEF) identifies locations of behaviorally important objects for guiding attention and eye movements. We recorded neural activity in the FEF of monkeys trained to manually turn a lever towards the location of a pop-out target of a visual search array without shifting gaze. We examined whether the reliability of the(More)
REPLY: We are grateful for the comments by Ahissar et al. on our recent manuscript (Masri et al. 2008) and for the opportunity to respond to these comments. Our manuscript focused on testing the hypothesis—formulated by Ahissar and collabo-rators—that the paralemniscal pathway in the rat's vibrissae system functions as a phase-locked loop (PLL) (Ahissar et(More)
