Striatal cell activity during sequential task performance has also been examined. Kermadi and Joseph (82) examined the properties of striatal cells during a task that required monkeys to engage in a sequential working memory task. They found that many of the cells with task-related activity had visual-related responses that varied according to the order of a given target, and moreover, that many of the caudate cells seemed to anticipate the fixation of specific targets. Such findings are similar to some of those reported in studies of areas 9 and 46 reviewed above.
