The activity of single neurons was recorded in area 5 while monkeys made parallel arm movements within different parts of space in an instructed-delay reaching task. In this task: (1) extrinsic variables, such as the direction of movement, were dissociated from intrinsic ones, such as the joint configuration used to perform the movements; and (2) the early neural events related to the presentation of the visual stimulus concerning movement direction were dissociated in time from the later… CONTINUE READING
