The role of accessory abducens nucleus neurons in the conditioned eye retraction/nictitating membrane extension response was defined in the rabbit. Horseradish peroxidase injections into the retractor bulbi muscle showed that accessory abducens nucleus is the principal location of its motor-neurons. Single and multiple unit recording in accessory abducens indicated that these motor neurons show a marked responsiveness to corneal and periorbital stimulation and fire in close correlation with… CONTINUE READING
