Saccade-related activity recorded in the primate pregeniculate nucleus, and its anatomical connections with the pretectal nucleus of the optic tract (NOT) and superior colliculus (SC), suggest that it plays a role in visual-ocular motor integration. To study this role, a clearer understanding of pregeniculate organization is required. Based on its connectivity and neurotransmitter immunocytochemistry, we demonstrate that this nucleus is composed of several subnuclei, suggesting the term… CONTINUE READING
