Cats were implanted chronically posterior to the post-cruciate dimple and trained to perform a self-paced reaching behavior. Evoked potentials were observed contralateral but not ipsilateral to the moving limb. It was observed that irregular movements yielded poor evoked potential averages, whereas stereotyped behavioral responses produced typical looking average potentials. The latency of a late component in the evoked potential seemed linearly related to time of behavioral response termination. It was suggested that this latency-termination relation was secondarily generated by an instantaneous representation of limb displacement by evoked potential amplitude.
