We recorded neural activity from the medial parieto-occipital area V6A while three monkeys performed an instructed-delay reaching task in the dark. Targets to be reached were in different spatial positions. Neural discharges were recorded during reaching movements directed outward from the body (towards visual objects), during the holding phase (when the hand was on the target) and during inward movements of the hand towards the home button (which was near the body and outside the field of view… CONTINUE READING
