Since Godlowski's studies in 19387, it is known that electrical stimulation of lateral posterior (LP) and pulvinar (Pul.) nuclei in the cat evokes conjugate eye and head movements. These findings were later supported by Roberts 1° who evoked visual searching and stereotyped motor responses in these regions. The participation of the LP-Pul. complex in oculomotor function is not surprising in view of its reciprocal connections with the superior colliculus (SC)1,2, 8. The aim of this study was to… CONTINUE READING
