1. We recorded visuomotor burst neurons in the deeper layers of the superior colliculus while two monkeys (Macaca fascicularis) made short-latency saccades known as express saccades to visual targets in order to determine whether the visual discharge normally seen for these cells served as the premotor burst during express saccades. We then compared saccade-related activity during express saccades with that recorded during regular latency saccades and delayed saccades. 2. Saccade latency… CONTINUE READING
