Batista, Aaron P. and Richard A. Andersen. The parietal reach
region codes the next planned movement in a sequential reach task. J
Neurophysiol 85: 539544, 2001. Distinct subregions of the posterior
parietal cortex contribute to planning different movements. The pari-
etal reach region (PRR) is active during the delay period of a memory-
guided reach task but generally not active during a memory-guided
saccade task. We explored whether the reach planning activity in PRR
is related to remembering targets for reaches or if it is related to
specifying the reach that the monkey is about to perform. Monkeys
were required to remember two target locations and then reach to
them in sequence. Before the movements were executed, PRR neu-
