The olivary pretectal nucleus is a primary visual centre sensitive to luminance changes. It is involved in the pupillary light reflex, the consensual pupillary light reflex and related reflexes, such as the lid closure reflex whereby pupillary constriction takes place. Since the olivary pretectal nucleus is a small nucleus, previous studies using… CONTINUE READING
