The neural bases of shifting attention and directing gaze were investigated in macaque monkeys performing a singleton search that required a prosaccade, antisaccade, or no saccade cued by the shape of the singleton. In prosaccade trials, most neurons in frontal eye field selected the location of the singleton that was also the end point of the saccade. In antisaccade trials, most neurons selected the singleton followed by selection of the endpoint of the saccade. Other neurons selected only the… CONTINUE READING
