Bhattacharyya R, Mussalam S, Andersen RA. Parietal reach region
encodes reach depth using retinal disparity and vergence angle
signals. J Neurophysiol 102: 805816, 2009. First published May 13,
2009; doi:10.1152/jn.90359.2008. Performing a visually guided reach
requires the ability to perceive the egocentric distance of a target in
three-dimensional space. Previous studies have shown that the parietal
reach region (PRR) encodes the two-dimensional location of fronto-
parallel targets in an eye-centered reference frame. To investigate how
a reach target is represented in three dimensions, we recorded the
