There is no general agreement on whether afferent signals from the extraocular muscles play any part in oculomotor control. However, we have previously shown that they modify the responses of cells in the oculomotor control system during the vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR). If, as we suspect, these signals have an important role in the control of the VOR from moment-to-moment, we should be able to demonstrate similar, functionally significant, modifications at the output of the reflex. We have… CONTINUE READING
