Abducens internuclear and ascending tract of Deiters (ATD) inputs to medial rectus motoneurons in the oculomotor nucleus are important for conjugate horizontal movements. In the present study, the organization of these separate populations of neurons and their synaptic connections with medial rectus motoneurons in the cat oculomotor nucleus have been examined by light and electron microscopy by using retrograde and anterograde axonal tracers. Consistent with the patterns of retrograde… CONTINUE READING
