Task‐switching paradigms are ideal for studying how primates implement and apply rules. This chapter summarizes a large body of work conducted on the comparative primatology and neurophysiology of task‐switching in macaque monkeys. This chapter presents ?ndings of rule representations from single‐neuron recordings in the intraparietal sulcus in posterior parietal cortex and argues that rule representation and control is implemented by a network spanning both frontal and posterior brain regions. These ?ndings provide a useful model for studying neuronal representations of task rules and the neural processes that apply those rules.

Keywords:   task‐switching, macaque monkeys, parietal cortex, intraparietal sulcus
