The lateral intraparietal area (LIP) is known to play important roles in the visuomotor transformation. A target with higher luminance is detected with reduced saccadic reaction times. The current study explored the possibility that the visual activity of LIP neurons not only encodes sensory information (target luminance) but also affects the saccade generation (saccadic reaction time) by recording visual activity from LIP of monkeys. Our results revealed how visually-responsive LIP neurons contribute to saccade generation in visual detection.
