Three monkeys were trained to perform a Go/No-go discrimination task where the animals were required to perform a muscular movement (Go) or to withhold it (No-go) depending on the previously presented signal. Single unit activity was recorded from the prefrontal cortex during the performance of the task. Among 512 task-related prefrontal units, 253 units showed differential activity in relation to the type of the trial (Go or No-go) either at the time of the response or both during the… CONTINUE READING
