A number of extrastriate visual areas in the parieto-occipital cortex are known from single-cell recordings of the macaque monkey to be involved in the coding of eye-position signals in the brainIan Law; Claus Svarer; Egill Rostrup; Olaf B. Paulson. Parieto-occipital cortex activation during self-generated eye movements in the dark. Brain 121 ( Pt 11):2189-200, 1998. PMID: 9827777. WOBIB: 1.
Attentional modulation was not restricted to extrastriate areas (including V3a and the V5 complex) but was also evident, to a lesser degree, in early visual areas close to the calcarine fissure (V1/V2 border)Christian Büchel; Oliver Josephs; G.

The pattern of activation during visually guided movements was consistent with the flow of information from striate and extrastriate visual areas, to the posterior parietal complex, and then to frontal motor areasJ.

Deduction activated areas near right brain homologues of left language areas in middle temporal lobe, inferior frontal cortex and basal ganglia, as well as right amygdala, but not spatial-visual areasL.
