And form a map of motor space. Fig. 4B illustrates the map of caccadic eye movement developed by Robinson ( 1972) (see figure legend for details). Because each cell discharges in association with a large number of saccades of different amplitudes and directions, a large population of cells is active before and during each saccade. The gray circles represents the hypothetical region of cellular activity associated with a IO” horizontal saccade. The population activity is characterized by a spatial and temporal gradient of activity: cells in the center of the active population (dark gray) discharge earliest and most vigorously whereas cells on the fringe of the active population (light gray) discharge later and less vigorously (Sparks and Mays, 1980).
