We review neural correlates of perceptual and motor decisions, examining whether the time they occupy explains the duration and variability of behavioral reaction times. The location of a salient target is identified through a spatiotemporal evolution of visually evoked activation throughout the visual system. Selection of the target leads to stochastic growth of movement-related activity toward a fixed threshold to generate the gaze shift. For a given image, the neural concomitants of perceptual processing occupy a relatively constant interval so that stochastic variability in response generation introduces additional variability in reaction times
