The Superior Colliculus: New Approaches for Studying Sensorimotor Integration discusses new experimental and theoretical approaches to investigating how the brain transforms sensory signals into the motor commands that are used to shift the direction of gaze. The material includes the potential models for sensorimotor integration in the primate brain, how computational models and experimental work can be integrated to test hypotheses about sensorimotor integration, models of how multiple cortical and subcortical structures interact to generate a single behavior, and a description of new methods to correlate behavior and neural function.
Table of Contents
Presenting information amassed from more than 30 years of research, this book gathers together the most important pieces of evidence regarding the structure and function of the superior colliculus. It explores the involvement of the superior colliculus in the control of gaze shift and rapid eye movements and provides a detailed discussion of structural features as they relate to functional properties. Placing empirical data in the context of theory, the editors use computational models of the superior colliculus as scaffolds around which to organize psychophysical, neurological, anatomical, and physiological findings concerning its involvement in orienting movements.
