The general involvement of the superior colliculus (SC) in orientation behavior and the striking parallels between the multisensory responses of SC neurons and overt orientation behaviors have led to assumptions that these neural and behavioral changes are directly linked. However, deactivation of two areas of cortex which also contain multisensory neurons, the anterior ectosylvian sulcus and rostral lateral suprasylvian sulcus have been shown to eliminate multisensory orientation behaviors… CONTINUE READING
