Parietal cortex has been implicated in the updating, after eye movements, of a salience map that is required for coherent visual experience and for the control of visually guided behavior. The current experiment investigated whether TMS over anterior intraparietal cortex (AIPCx), just after a saccade, would affect the ability to update and maintain a(More)
Brain representations of visual space are predominantly eye-centred (retinotopic) yet our experience of the world is largely world-centred (spatiotopic). A long-standing question is how the brain creates continuity between these reference frames across successive eye movements (saccades). Here we use functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to address(More)
Reading action verbs is associated with activity in the motor cortices involved in performing the corresponding actions. Here, we present new evidence that the motor cortex is involved in semantic processing of bodily action verbs. In contrast to previous studies, we used a direct, non-behavioural index of semantic processing after repetitive transcranial(More)
The reduction in saccade latency when the fixation point is removed (fixation offset effect–FOE) reflects the degree to which fixation neurons are under influence by a stimulus at fixation. Strategic manipulations of oculomotor readiness that bring these neurons under endogenous control reduce the magnitude of the FOE. Using an aging foreperiod paradigm,(More)
