Primate frontal eye fields. I. Single neurons discharging before saccades.
We studied the activity of single neurons in the frontal eye fields of awake macaque monkeys trained to perform several oculomotor tasks. Fifty-four percent of neurons discharged before visually… Expand
The updating of the representation of visual space in parietal cortex by intended eye movements.
The receptive field, or retinal response area, of an individual visual neuron moves with the eyes so that after an eye movement it covers a new portion of visual space. Expand

We studied single neurons in the frontal eye fields of awake macaque monkeys and compared their activity with the saccadic eye movements elicited by microstimulation at the sites of these neurons.… Expand
Space and attention in parietal cortex.
The space around us is represented not once but many times in parietal cortex. These multiple representations encode locations and objects of interest in several egocentric reference frames. Stimulus… Expand
Ventral intraparietal area of the macaque: anatomic location and visual response properties.
1. The middle temporal area (MT) projects to the intraparietal sulcus in the macaque monkey. We describe here a discrete area in the depths of the intraparietal sulcus containing neurons with… Expand
Neuronal Activity in the Lateral Intraparietal Area and Spatial Attention
Although the parietal cortex has been implicated in the neural processes underlying visual attention, the nature of its contribution is not well understood. We tracked attention in the monkey and… Expand
Ventral intraparietal area of the macaque: congruent visual and somatic response properties.
In a previous report, we described the visual response properties in the ventral intraparietal area (area VIP) of the awake macaque. Here we describe the somatosensory response properties in area VIP… Expand
Visual, presaccadic, and cognitive activation of single neurons in monkey lateral intraparietal area.
1. Posterior parietal cortex contains neurons that are visually responsive and active in relation to saccadic eye movements. We recorded from single neurons in a subregion of parietal cortex, the… Expand
Attention, intention, and priority in the parietal lobe.
For many years there has been a debate about the role of the parietal lobe in the generation of behavior. Does it generate movement plans (intention) or choose objects in the environment for further… Expand
Spatial processing in the monkey frontal eye field. I. Predictive visual responses.
Neurons in the lateral intraparietal area and intermediate layers of the superior colliculus show predictive visual responses. They respond before an impending saccade to a stimulus that will be… Expand
