Target selection for saccadic eye movements: prelude activity in the superior colliculus during a direction-discrimination task.

Abstract

We investigated the role of the superior colliculus (SC) in saccade target selection while macaque monkeys performed a direction-discrimination task. The monkeys selected one of two possible saccade targets based on the direction of motion in a stochastic random-dot display; the difficulty of the task was varied by adjusting the strength of the motion… (More)
