The cortical area V6A, located in the dorsal part of the anterior bank of the parieto-occipital sulcus, contains retino- and craniocentric visual neurones together with neurones sensitive to gaze direction and/or saccadic eye movements, somatosensory stimulation and arm movements. The aim of this work was to study the dynamic characteristics of V6A saccade-related activity. Extracellular recordings were carried out in six macaque monkeys performing a visually guided saccade task with the head… CONTINUE READING
