Enhanced motion sensitivity follows saccadic suppression in the superior temporal sulcus of the Macaque Cortex

Ibbotson, Michael; Price, Nicholas; Crowder, Nathan; Ono, S; Mustari, Michael J


The responses of neurons in the middle temporal and medial superior temporal areas of macaque cortex are suppressed during saccades compared with saccade-like stimulus movements. We utilized the short-latency ocular following paradigm to show that this saccadic suppression is followed by postsaccadic enhancement of motion responses. The level of enhancement decays with a time constant of 100 ms from saccade end. The speed of ocular following is also enhanced after saccades and decays over a...[Show more]
