In previous studies involving monkeys performing behavioral tasks, neurons in the nucleus basalis frequently had significant changes in discharge rate when the animal made a movement in response to a sensory stimulus in order to obtain a reward. To determine whether such responses of basalis neurons are primarily sensory or motor in nature, the activity of single basalis neurons was recorded in monkeys performing a go/no-go (GNG) task which provided a dissociation between sensory and motor… CONTINUE READING
