Legend: l/rMT = left/right middle temporal area; l/rIPS = left/right intraparietal sulcus; l/rFEF = left/right frontal eye field.
Thus, development of ommatidia in this ancestral eye field is likely to have been more flexible, and served by a greater number of cells, than is observed in insects.

Carapace with shallow constriction, slightly higher in cephalic part; surface with punctured sculpture; carapace dark brown with black eye field; covered in thin long colourless hairs, with scattered white scales among them and long bristles near eyes; two long trichobothria in constriction.
In addition, a dramatically small eye field could be observed in morphants (Figure 2).
Unlike the basal ganglia, the SC remains intact until later stages in the pathological process [4], and both the SC and the striatum receive cortical input from the frontal eye fields (FEF), the supplementary eye fields, and the parietal eye fields [51].
Event-related functional MRI studies of the brain during the preparation of a response--after sensory processing but before the actual motor response--have indicated that neuronal activation increases in the regions that underlie the preparation of a response in adults, such as the frontal eye field, DLPFC, anterior cingulate, and lateral cerebellum.

Eye field: 0.75-0.80 long, anterior 0.95-1.00 wide, posterior 1.00-1.10 wide.
In the study, the researchers looked for patterns of neural synchrony in two "rooms" of the brain associated with attention - the frontal eye field (FEF) within the prefrontal cortex and the V4 region of the visual cortex.
This frontal-brain region, called the supplementary eye field, lies within a larger neural system devoted to regulating one's behavior, proposes a team led by psychologist Jeffrey D.
