Single-neuron discharge was recorded from prefrontal and posterior parietal cortex in monkeys performing a visuo-motor memory task with temporal and spatial separation between cue (color) and directional manual response. During the delay interval between cue and response, neurons in both cortices engaged in two concurrent and reciprocal trends of discharge: (a) sensory-coupled, decelerating firing apparently related to color retention, or (b) motor-coupled, accelerating firing apparently… CONTINUE READING
