Summary

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.
