rietal area. II. Behavioral modulation. J. Neurophysiol. 82: 343358,
1999. The lateral intraparietal area (LIP), a region of posterior parietal
cortex, was once thought to be unresponsive to auditory stimulation.
However, recent reports have indicated that neurons in area LIP
respond to auditory stimuli during an auditory-saccade task. To what
extent are auditory responses in area LIP dependent on the perfor-
mance of an auditory-saccade task? To address this question, record-
ings were made from 160 LIP neurons in two monkeys while the
animals performed auditory and visual memory-saccade and fixation
