Abstract

Many neurons in the pulvinar nuclei of awake monkeys respond to real image motion while the animal maintains fixation. Many of these same cells do not discharge to comparable stimulus movement when it is caused by an eye movement. This lack of sensory response is most likely mediated by an extraretinal signal.
