Neurons in the intermediate and deep layers of the superior colliculus (SC) often exhibit sensory-related activity in addition to discharging for saccadic eye movements. These two patterns of activity can combine so that modifications of the sensory response can lead to changes in orienting behaviour. Can behavioural factors, however, influence sensory activity? In this study of rhesus monkeys, we isolate one behavioural factor, the state of visual fixation, and examine its influences on… CONTINUE READING
