It has been argued that saccade generation is supported by two systems, a'where' system that decides the direction and extent of an impending saccade, and a 'when' system that is involved in the timing of the release of fixation. We evaluated the contributions of these systems to saccade latencies, and used functional MRI to identify the neural substrates of these systems. We found that advance knowledge of the direction and the timing of an impending target movement had both overlapping and… CONTINUE READING
