Brain areas at higher levels of cortical organization are thought to be more involved in decision processes than are earlier, i.e. lower, sensory areas. Hence, neuronal activity correlated with decisions should vary with an area's position in the cortical hierarchy. To test this proposal, we investigated whether a change in neuronal activity during error trials depends in a systematic way on cortical hierarchical position. While macaque monkeys discriminated the direction of moving visual… CONTINUE READING
