1. Single cell activity was recorded from the Anterior Suprasylvian (ASS) gyrus of cats trained to orient their gaze toward visual or auditory stimuli. 2. Sixty-five fixation cells were activated or suppressed as long as the animals were attentive to a particular region of space in the tangential or in the radial direction. Most of these fixation cells were neither light nor sound sensitive. 3. Fifty-five cells were activated in relation to saccades. Fourteen neurons were active before and 41… CONTINUE READING
