Recent experiments raised the possibility that the lateral intraparietal area (LIP) might be specialized for saccade planning. If this was true, one would expect a decreased sensitivity to irrelevant visual stimuli appearing late in the delay period of a memory-guided delayed-saccade task to a target outside the neurons' receptive fields. We trained two monkeys to perform a standard memory-guided delayed-saccade task and a distractor task in which a stimulus flashed for 200 ms at a predictable… CONTINUE READING
