The frontal eye field as a prediction map.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Predictive processes are widespread in the motor and sensory areas of the primate brain. They enable rapid computations despite processing delays and assist in resolving noisy, ambiguous input. Here we propose that the frontal eye field, a cortical area devoted to sensorimotor aspects of eye movement control, implements a prediction map of the postsaccadic visual scene for the purpose of constructing a stable percept despite saccadic eye movements.
