Behaviour of neurons in monkey peri-arcuate and precentral cortex before and during visually guided arm and hand movements.


Neuron activity was recorded in monkey cerebral cortex during a visually guided reaching task. Cells located in the banks of the arcuate sulcus at its curvature changed their activity during the period in which the monkey saw a food reward in a certain position, but before it moved to retrieve the reward. A role of these neurons in visual guidance of arm and hand movements is postulated.
