dysarthria, emotional lability, or imbalance. Although none had MRI evidence of brainstem lesions, they propose that OPN, and to some extent PBN, malfunction would account for the findings based on prior pathologic and modeling evidence. Perhaps because the RIP lies adjacent to the PPRF, none of the reported cases showed selective deficits of horizontal saccades like Jain et al.’s cases. However, experiments in monkeys showed that rostral PPRF lesions cause selective loss of horizontal saccades… CONTINUE READING
