Self-motion or object motion can elicit optokinetic nystagmus (OKN), which is an integral part of dynamic spatial orientation. We used functional MR imaging during horizontal OKN to study cerebral activation patterns in sensory and ocular motor areas in 10 subjects. We found activation bilaterally in the primary visual cortex, the motion-sensitive areas in the occipitotemporal cortex (the middle temporal and medial superior temporal areas), and in areas known to control several types of… CONTINUE READING
