  • axons
  • Such retinae emit axons that grow dorsally through the brain parenchyma to reach the superficial layers of the superior colliculus either by running dorsally along the midline, or by following a dorsally directed, radially arching course through the brain parenchyma. (semanticscholar.org)
  • neuron
  • 1 . Moren J, Shibata T, Doya K (2013) The mechanism of saccade motor pattern generation investigated by a large-scale spiking neuron model of the superior colliculus. (yale.edu)
  • This is an upper-level README for the model associated with the paper: Moren J, Shibata T, Doya K (2013) The mechanism of saccade motor pattern generation investigated by a large-scale spiking neuron model of the superior colliculus. (yale.edu)
  • To investigate this, we have focused on the retina's projection to the superior colliculus (SC), where multiple visual neuron subtypes have been described. (gwu.edu)
  • cerebral cortex
  • We examined five nuclei critical for saccade initiation and modulation: the frontal eye field (FEF) in the cerebral cortex, the subthalamic nucleus (STN), caudate nucleus (CD), and substantia nigra pars reticulata (SNr) in the basal ganglia (BG), and the superior colliculus (SC) in the midbrain.

  • BEHAVIOR
  • Therefore, a robust neural correlate of active avoidance behavior is found in the superior colliculus, emphasizing its role in the detection of salient sensory signals that require immediate action. (jneurosci.org)
  • May, Paul J. 2017-09-15 00:00:00 The superior colliculus is one of the most well-studied structures in the brain, and with each new report, its proposed role in behavior seems to increase in complexity. (deepdyve.com)
  • next inactivated the superior colliculus with a drug and showed that this prevented both the licking behavior and the increased signaling. (elifesciences.org)
  • pathway
  • Testar a hipótese de que a suposta vantagem do hemicampo temporal é mediada pelos chamados 'extrageniculate pathways' - ou seja, caminhos visuais que não incluem a passagem pelo núcleo geniculado lateral -, mais concretamente via o 'retinotectal pathway' (percurso que atravessa o coliculo superior). (prezi.com)
  • signals
  • Therefore, the superior colliculus can serve as an early relay station for rapid detection of sensory signals that are behaviorally significant and require immediate action, an early sensorimotor hub well suited to mediate active avoidance. (jneurosci.org)
  • activity
  • Here, we recorded neural activity simultaneously from the superior colliculus and barrel cortex of animals performing an active avoidance task to determine whether neural activity differs between avoids, escapes (unsuccessful avoids), and spontaneous shuttling. (jneurosci.org)
