1. The activity of 113 Y group neurons was recorded extracellularly in 5 alert squirrel monkeys. Sixty-two cells were recorded in naive animals, and 51 cells were recorded after adaptation of the vestibuloocular reflex (VOR) with the use of telescopic lenses. The animals were lying on their right side, so that head rotation was in the vertical (pitch) plane and optokinetic stimulation elicited vertical eye movement. The responses of most cells, as well as the concurrent eye movement, were… CONTINUE READING
