  • RECENT SINGLE-UNIT recording studies of the alert rhesus monkey superior colliculus have disclosed that the deeper layers of this structure contain cells which discharge in association with eye movement (15-17, 23, 24). Such units fire selectively prior to saccades of a specific direction and size, irrespective of the position of the eye in orbit. Stimulation studies of the superior colliculus have so far produced conflicting results. Some reports suggest that in the alert cat stimulation… CONTINUE READING
