Abstract

Stimulation in of the Alert MICHAEL STKYKER Institute H. SCHILLEK of Psychology, Massachusetts Massachusetts 02139 of Technology, RECENT SINGLE-UNIT recording studies of the alert have disclosed that the deeper layers of this structure contain cells which discharge in association with eye movement (15-17, 23, 24). Such units fire selectively prior to saccades of a specific direction size, irrespective of the position of the eye in orbit. Stimulation studies of the have so far produced conflicting results. Some reports suggest that in the alert cat stimulation brings the eye to a certain position in orbit irrespective of eye position prior to stimulation (1, 9, 19). Thus, the size direction of elicited saccades is reported to vary as a function of initial eye position. By contrast, in the alert it has recently been reported that stimulation produces conjugate saccades of a specific size direction; these parameters are the same no matter where the eye is in the orbit prior to stimulation (12, 15, 16). The stimulation map of Robinson (12) shows a reasonable correspondence with the receptive-field map of the reported by Cynader Berman (5). The aim of this study was to clarify the relationship between recording stimulation data by
