Activation of neurons responsive to
Selected vs. non-selectedtarget from Chelazzi et al (1993)
dx1/dt = r1-l(x1)+af(x1)–bf(x2)+x1
dx2/dt = r2-l(x2)+af(x2)–bf(x1)+x2
|k-b| = 0
|k-b| = .2
|k-b| = .4
Subjects show both kindsof biases; the less the bias,the higher the accuracy,as predicted.
RT task paradigm of R&T.
Motion coherence anddirection is varied fromtrial to trial.
Data are averaged over many different neurons that areassociated with intended eye movements to the locationof target.
