We recorded responses from 298 units in the fronto-opercular cortex (Fop) of three Japanese macaque monkeys. The units were activated while animals were drinking or eating. Three types of units could be defined: units with transient responses to the delivery of all the fluid into the mouth (ON-type units; n = 123); units activated in association with certain oral movements, e.g., licking (MO-type units; n = 90); and units responsive specifically to a certain fluid (taste units; n = 85). In both… CONTINUE READING
