Abstract:


Spatial working memory (WM) modulates alpha-beta oscillations of local field potentials (LFPs) within extrastriate visual areas. These areas receive a strong signal from the Frontal Eye Field (FEF) carrying the content of WM. In order to examine the necessity of FEF in driving these WM-induced oscillatory changes, we pharmacologically inactivated FEF and simultaneously recorded the spiking activity and LFPs in the V4 cortex of macaque monkeys during a ...
