[Positive potentials ot the human brain in the latent presaccadic period under conditions of stimulation of the leading and nonleading eye].

[Article in Russian]


We used backward averaging method to study fast positive presaccadic EEG-potentials under conditions of the monocular stimulation of the leading and nonleading eye. Two schemes of the visual stimulus presentation ("no gap" and "overlap") were used. In the "no gap" condition, potential P1 dominated in the hemispere ipsilateral to a saccade direction. In the "overlap" condition, when the gaze was fixed at the central point, foci of this potential were localized in the sagittal derivations or in the same sites as in the "no gap" conditions. Irrespective on the stimulation scheme, the P2 foci were localized in the hemisphere contralateral to a saccade direction. We assume that the fast positive potentials involve both activation and inhibition processes in visuomotor structures and can be also associated with cognitive presaccadic processes (such as fixation disengage, attention lateralization and a preliminary extraction of motor programs from memory).
