Lesions in the cat prepositus complex: effects on the vestibulo-ocular reflex and saccades.


The effects of bilateral electrolytic lesions within and around the prepositus hypoglossi (p.h.) nucleus on horizontal saccades in the dark and on the horizontal sinusoidal vestibulo-ocular reflex (v.o.r.) in the dark were studied. After p.h. lesion, including its rostral part between P 7 and P 8, the v.o.r. showed a phase lead as much as about 90 deg at 0… (More)
