The horizontal optokinetic nystagmus in the cat

  title={The horizontal optokinetic nystagmus in the cat},
  author={Claudio Maioli and Wolfgang Precht},
  journal={Experimental Brain Research},
1)Horizontal optokinetic eye nystagmus (OKN) and afternystagmus (OKAN) were recorded in the alert cat (head restrained) in response to velocity steps and sinusoidal optokinetic stimuli. 2)A strong dependency of OKN performance on stimulus pattern was found: responses were most regular and gain was high over a large range of stimulus velocities when the stimulus consisted of a high-contrast random dot pattern. 3) Following velocity steps, OKN showed a small amplitude fast rise in slow phase… CONTINUE READING
