In order to test the proposal that the zona incerta contributes to the generation of orienting movements, we examined the synaptic relationships between the incertotectal pathway and the cells of origin of the predorsal bundle. The predorsal bundle cells give rise to the major premotor pathway from the superior colliculus to the brainstem gaze centers. First, cytochrome oxidase histochemistry, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), and glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD) immunocytochemistry, and the… CONTINUE READING
