The activity of 176 individual cells in the arm area of motor cortex (areas 4 and 6) was studied while monkeys made arm movements of similar direction within different parts of extrapersonal space. The behavioral paradigm used was a 3-dimensional reaction-time task aimed at dissociating the direction of movement, which remained similar across the work space, from the patterns of muscular activity and the angular joint excursions necessary to perform these movements. In agreement with other… CONTINUE READING
