1. Rhesus monkeys were trained to look to brief visual targets presented in an otherwise darkened room. On some trials, after the visual target was extinguished but before a saccade to it could be initiated, the eyes were driven to another orbital position by microstimulation of the paramedian pontine reticular formation. If, as current models of the saccadic system suggest, a copy of the motor command is used as a feedback signal of eye position, failure to compensate for stimulation-induced… CONTINUE READING
