The frontal eye fields (FEF), located in prefrontal cortex, participate in the transformation of visual signals to gaze motor commands. We stimulated the FEF in head-unrestrained monkeys to see whether this produces gaze shifts toward eye-fixed goals, or toward goals defined in other frames. Consistent with the FEF's intermediate placement within high-level gaze circuitry, we found that the frames for its motor output varied site-by-site, mainly within the continuum between eye and head frames.
