    Mark M Churchland
    Howard Hughes Medical Institute, San Francisco, California 94143, USA
    J Neurophysiol 90:2205-18. 2003
    ..Computer simulations show that these results are best understood by assuming that a mechanism of eye-velocity memory remains engaged during target occlusion but is disengaged during target blinks...

    Mark M Churchland
    Neurosciences Program, Stanford University, Stanford, California 94305, USA
    J Neurosci 26:3697-712. 2006
    ..These results reveal a remarkable degree of temporal structure in the variability of cortical neurons. The relationship with reaction time argues that the changes in variability approximately track the progress of motor preparation...

    Neurosciences Program and Department of Electrical Engineering, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305 4075, USA
    J Neurophysiol 96:3130-46. 2006
