Aim: anatomical investigation showed connections between prefrontal cortex area 9 and cerebellum. The caudal part of area 9 is also called area 8B. Area 9 and area 8B are connected also with auditory-association cortex. previous unit activity recording and microstimulation experiments showed that area 8B is involved in ear-eye motor control. The aim of the present invastigation was to show, by unit activity recording, the role of area 8B in auditory motor integration and the role of the engagement of attention during visual fixation in auditory-motor processes.

Abstract

Aim: anatomical investigation showed connections between prefrontal cortex area 9 and cerebellum. The caudal part of area 9 is also called area 8B. Area 9 and area 8B are connected also with auditory-association cortex. previous unit activity recording and microstimulation experiments showed that area 8B is involved in ear-eye motor control. The aim of the present invastigation was to show, by unit activity recording, the role of area 8B in auditory motor integration and the role of the engagement of attention during visual fixation in auditory-motor processes.
