Neuronal activity was studied in the primary (M1), supplementary (M2), dorsal premotor (PMd), and ventral premotor (PMv) cortex of awake, behaving rhesus monkeys. The animals performed forelimb movements to three targets, each approached by three different types of trajectories. With one trajectory type, the monkey moved its hand straight to the target, with another, the path curved in a clockwise direction, and with a third, the path curved in a counter-clockwise direction. We examined whether… CONTINUE READING
