The oculomotor system is well understood compared with other motor systems; however, we do not yet know the spatial details of sensory to motor transformations. This study addresses this issue by quantifying the spatial relationships between visual and motor responses in the superior colliculus (SC), a midbrain structure involved in the transformation of visual information into saccadic motor command signals. We collected extracellular single-unit recordings from 150 visual-motor (VM) and 28… CONTINUE READING
