1. The discharge patterns and axonal projections of saccadic long-lead burst neurons (LLBNs) with somata in the pontine reticular formation were studied in alert squirrel monkeys with the use of the method of intraaxonal recording and horseradish peroxidase injection. 2. The largest population of stained neurons were afferents to the cerebellum. They originated in the dorsomedial nucleus reticularis tegmenti pontis (NRTP) including its dorsal cell group (N = 5), the preabducens intrafascicular… CONTINUE READING
