Recent experiments are reviewed that indicate that sensory signals from many modalities, as well as efference copy signals from motor structures, converge in the posterior parietal cortex in order to code the spatial locations of goals for movement. These signals are combined using a specific gain mechanism that enables the different coordinate frames of(More)
Many neurons in the posterior-parietal cortex (PPC) have saccadic responses to visual and auditory targets. The responses are modulated by eye position and head position. These findings suggest that PPC integrates multisensory inputs and may provide information about saccadic targets represented in different coordinate frames. In addition to an eyecentered(More)
Many neurons in macaque lateral intraparietal cortex (LIP) maintain elevated activity induced by visual or auditory targets during tasks in which monkeys are required to withhold one or more planned eye movements. We studied the mechanisms for such memory activity with neural network modeling. Recurrent connections among simulated LIP neurons were used to(More)
OBJECTIVE Combined spinal-epidural analgesia (CSEA) is sometimes used for difficult births, but whether it contributes to postpartum pelvic muscle disorder is unclear. This randomized controlled trial examined whether CSEA given during labor affects the electrophysiological index of postpartum pelvic floor muscle function. METHODS A consecutive sample of(More)
