Our recent studies in non-human primates have identified and characterized cerebro-ponto-cerebellar pathways involved in the control of vergence eye movements. Specifically, within the deep cerebellar nuclei and nucleus reticularis tegmenti pontis, we have identified neurons that are related to either the near response (convergence and increased ocular accommodation) or the far response (divergence and decreased ocular accommodation). In addition, within the prearcuate region (area 8a), we have… CONTINUE READING
