Positron emission tomography (PET) was used to investigate the functional anatomy of the foveal fixation system in 10 subjects scanned under three different conditions: at rest (REST), during the fixation of a central point (FIX), and while fixating the same foveal target during the presentation of peripheral visual distractors (DIS). Compared with the REST condition, both FIX and DIS tasks activated a common set of cortical areas. First, in addition to the involvement of the occipital visual… CONTINUE READING
