BACKGROUND The superior colliculus (SC) has been shown to play a crucial role in the initiation and coordination of eye- and head-movements. The knowledge about the function of this structure is mainly based on single-unit recordings in animals with relatively few neuroimaging studies investigating eye-movement related brain activity in humans. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS The present study employed high-field (7 Tesla) functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to investigate SC… CONTINUE READING
