The cerebellar fastigial oculomotor region (FOR) and the overlying oculomotor vermis (OV) are involved in the control of saccadic eye movements, but nature and function of their saccade-related neuronal signals are not fully understood. There is controversy in at least two major aspects: first, lesion studies in OV/FOR reported eye-position-dependent dysmetria-with FOR lesions, centripetal saccades became more hypermetric than centrifugal saccades-suggesting that the cerebellum may compensate… CONTINUE READING
