This review summarises research in patients with chronic lesions of parietal oculomotor cortex and compares their oculomotor performance to patients with lesions of the frontal eye field (FEF). The observations identify the oculomotor functions for which these regions are indispensable, and explore dynamic interactions within cortical and subcortical networks for oculomotor control. The experiments examined endogenously generated saccades, saccades to visual targets, antisaccades, saccade… CONTINUE READING
