In recent years, I have devoted most of my effort to education and administration. However, for more than 30 years, my laboratory studied the neural control of voluntary movement, using the oculomotor system of primates as our model. In particular, research in this laboratory focused on the functional organization and anatomical connectivity of regions in the cerebral cortex that are concerned with the control of voluntary movement, and specifically with voluntary eye movement. We used behavioral studies, behavioral neurophysiology studies, and physiologically-guided neuroanatomical studies in non-human primates to determine that there are several distinct regions in the cerebral cortex (designated eye fields) that form a cortico-cortical network that functions cooperatively to guide and execute voluntary, visually guided saccadic and pursuit eye movements.
