E. GOLDBERG Neurobiology, Maryl 20014 Colliculus in Behaving Monkey. ROBERT Institute H. WURTZ Mental Health, Nntional THE SIJPERIOR COI,LICIJT,I :S has long been thought to participate in the neural events preceding ly guided eye movements, but the nature this participation has never been understood. The monkey colliculus receives input directly from the retina indirectly from cortex (42) cells in the superior colliculus have been shown to respond to stimulation in many species (see review by monkeys Sprague et al., ref 32) including (14, 16, 17, 28). While the colliculus ha i no known direct anatomical connections to the motor nuclei the extraocular muscles in the monkey, it does send fibers to possible intermediate nuclei (20). Eyemovement elects in the monkey were demonstrated through stimulation studies (23) through the discovery cells that discharge before saccades (28, 47). However, these cells are not necessary for the actual production eye movements since monkeys with lesions the superior colliculus appear to have the full range normal eye movements (1, 21). In this series experiments we used awake behaving monkeys to rci rives tiga te the superior colliculus by first examining the relationship to stimuli ancl eye movements under varying behavioral conditions, by
