Dissociated functional significance of decision-related activity in the primate dorsal stream
During decision making, neurons in multiple brain regions exhibit responses that are correlated with decisions. However, it remains uncertain whether or not various forms of decision-related activityExpand
Deep transcranial magnetic stimulation over the prefrontal cortex: Evaluation of antidepressant and cognitive effects in depressive patients
TLDR
The results accentuate the significance of deep, high-intensity stimulation over low, and serve as the first study to indicate the potential of DTMS in psychiatric and neurologic disorders. Expand
Functional dissection of signal and noise in MT and LIP during decision-making
TLDR
It is found that monkeys based their choices on evidence presented in early epochs of the motion stimulus and that substantial early weighting of motion was present in MT responses and that trial-by-trial variability in LIP did not depend on MT activity. Expand
Differential effects of deep TMS of the prefrontal cortex on apathy and depression
TLDR
DTMS over the PFC improved both apathy and depression similarly, however, DTMS did not lead to MDD remission if ApHRSD at screening was ≥ 7 of 12, and further investigation using a larger sample will determine whether screening apathy at baseline could be used to predict efficacy of DTMS in MDD patients.

The Role of the Lateral Intraparietal Area in (the Study of) Decision Making.
TLDR
The resulting sensorimotor-focused approach offers an account of LIP activity as a multiplexed amalgam of sensory, cognitive, and motor-related activity, with a complex and often indirect relationship to decision processes. Expand
Eye Movements, Visual Search and Scene Memory, in an Immersive Virtual Environment
TLDR
It is found that, similar to two-dimensional contexts, viewers rapidly learn the location of objects in the environment over time, and use spatial memory to guide search, and memory-guided prioritization (or Surprise) may be a robust mechanisms for attracting gaze to novel features of natural environments, in addition to task factors and simple spatial saliency.

Decision-related perturbations of decision-irrelevant eye movements
TLDR
The results demonstrate that oculomotor function can be affected by decision formation, even when decisions are communicated without eye movements, and that this interaction has a directionally specific component. Expand
Cross-species comparison of anticipatory and stimulus-driven neck muscle activity well before saccadic gaze shifts in humans and nonhuman primates.
TLDR
Regardless of the presence of the SLR, neck muscle activity in both human SPL and in NHPs became predictive of the reaction time of the ensuing saccade gaze shift ∼70 ms after target appearance; such pregaze recruitment likely reflects developing SCi activity, even if the tectoreticulospinal pathway does not reliably relay visually related activity to SPL in humans.

Strategic and Dynamic Temporal Weighting for Perceptual Decisions in Humans and Macaques
TLDR
It is shown that time-varying weighting can reflect strategic adaptation to stimulus statistics, and thus can readily take a number of forms, and is introduced as a paradigm with which to manipulate sensory weighting in decision-making tasks. Expand
A Distinct Mechanism of Temporal Integration for Motion through Depth
TLDR
Overall differences in sensitivity for 2D and 3D motion that are consistent with a sensory difference between binocular and dichoptic sensory mechanisms are confirmed, and a difference at the integration stage is revealed, in which3D motion is not accumulated as perfectly as in the 2D motion model system.
