It has long been believed that the superior colliculus (SC) is involved in the production of saccades but plays no role in the generation of vergence eye movements. However, results from several recent studies suggest that it may be worthwhile to examine the role of the SC in saccade-vergence interactions. Specifically, the available literature suggests two questions: do saccade-related neurons in SC have three-dimensional movement fields and is the slowing of saccades by vergence attributable… CONTINUE READING
