The caudal part of the fastigial nucleus, or the fastigial oculomotor region (FOR), plays an important role in executing accurate saccades. Inactivation of a monkey FOR leads to dysmetric saccades. Currently available data suggest that the dysmetria could be described as a parametric, uniform change in saccadic gain or, alternatively, as a constant error in the specification of the saccadic goal. To discriminate between these two possibilities, we examined the effect of FOR inactivation in the… CONTINUE READING
