As the integrity of the omnipause neurons located in the nucleus raphe interpositus is a prerequisite of normal ocular motility, cell and neurofibrillary tangle densities were determined in 13 Steele-Richardson-Olszewski syndrome (SROS) cases [eight with supranuclear gaze palsy (SGP) and five without] and six controls. Compared with normal controls, cases with SGP were associated with approximately 50% nerve cell loss (P < 0.001), whereas data from cases without SGP were not significantly… CONTINUE READING
