The phase of low-frequency oscillatory activity in mdPul is linked to behavioral performance. Hit rates (HRs) were calculated (across recording sessions, N = 95) as a function of oscillatory phase when response fields overlapped the cued location. a Phase-detection functions were then fit with one-cycle sine waves (left), with the amplitude of that sine wave representing the strength of the relationship between visual-target detection and oscillatory phase. These phase-detection relationships were calculated at different frequencies, from 3 to 60 Hz (right). Phase-detection relationships at higher frequencies (in FEF and LIP) were previously shown to be dependent on the phase of theta-band rhythms4. b Phase-detection relationships in mdPul were therefore re-calculated after first binning trials into two theta-phase bins: (i) one centered on the theta phase associated with better visual-target detection (i.e., the “good” bin) and (ii) one centered on the theta phase associated with worse visual-target detection (i.e., the “poor” bin). The black dots represent statistically significant results after corrections for multiple comparisons
