We review current knowledge of the cortical control of spatial memory, studied using visuooculomotor paradigms. Spatial memory is an essential cognitive process that can be involved in preparing motor responses. Our knowledge of spatial memory in humans recently has progressed thanks to the use of ocular saccades as a convenient model of motor behavior. Accuracy of memory-guided saccades, made to the remembered locations of visual targets, is a reflection of spatial memory. For the performance… CONTINUE READING
