18151829, 2002; 10.1152/jn.00733.2002. When monkeys make sac-
cadic eye movements to simple visual targets, neurons in the lateral
intraparietal area (LIP) display a retinotopic, or eye-centered, coding
of the target location. However natural saccadic eye movements are
often directed at objects or parts of objects in the visual scene. In this
paper we investigate whether LIP represents saccadic eye movements
differently when the target is specified as part of a visually displayed
