Developmental changes in optokinetic mechanisms in the absence of unilateral cortical control.

Animal models suggest that the asymmetry of monocular optokinetic nystagmus (OKN) in young infants can be explained by a direct pathway from retina to the midbrain nucleus of the optic tract. However, earlier studies with hemispherectomized infants showed no evidence for OKN responses towards the damaged cortex that could be ascribed to this subcortical… CONTINUE READING
