Single-unit recordings were made from neurons with horizontal eye position sensitivity in the oculomotor and abducens nuclei in alert monkeys. The animals were trained to perform a visual tracking task that resulted in conjugate eye movements or symmetrical vergence movements. Scatterplots were obtained for unit firing rate as a function of the position of the ipsilateral eye for both types of movement. The slopes of the linear regression line were computed for conjugate (kc) and vergence… CONTINUE READING
