Eye movements induced by electrical stimulation in the rabbit's mesodiencephalon.

32 adult albino rabbits were used to investigate the oculomotor function of the mesodiencephalon. Bipolar electrical stimulation was used to induce saccades in unanesthetized rabbits. Saccades were induced from relatively broad regions of the rabbit's mesodiencephalon except for tractus opticus, a part of nucleus lateralis posterior thalami and some parts… CONTINUE READING
