Frontal eye field (FEF) neurons discharge in response to behaviorally relevant stimuli that are potential targets for saccades. Distinct visual and motor processes have been dissociated in the FEF of macaque monkeys, but little is known about the visual processing capacity of FEF in humans. We used double-pulse transcranial magnetic stimulation (d)TMS to investigate the timing of target discrimination during visual conjunction search. We applied dual TMS pulses separated by 40 msec over the… CONTINUE READING
