Many neurons in the frontal eye field (FEF) and lateral intraparietal (LIP) areas of cerebral cortex are active during the visual-motor events preceding the initiation of saccadic eye movements: they respond to visual targets, increase their activity before saccades, and maintain their activity during intervening delay periods. Previous experiments have shown that the output neurons from both LIP and FEF convey the full range of these activities to the superior colliculus (SC) in the brain stem… CONTINUE READING
