Monosynaptic activation of medium-lead burst neurons from the superior colliculus in the alert cat.


1. Extracellular recordings were made from medium-lead burst neurons (MLBNs) in the paramedian pontomedullary reticular formation rostral and caudal to the abducens nucleus in the alert cat. 2. Single-pulse stimulation of the contralateral superior colliculus during intersaccadic intervals evoked no response in most MLBNs. When collicular stimulation was… (More)
