We explored the ventral part of the premotor cortex (PMV) with intracortical microstimulation (ICMS) while monkeys performed a visual fixation task, to see whether the PMV is involved in oculomotor control. ICMS evoked saccades from a small-restricted region in the PMV, without evoking movements in the limbs, neck, or body. We found the saccade-evoking site… CONTINUE READING
