  author={Paul D. R. Gamlin},
  journal={Progress in brain research},
Research over the past two decades in mammals, especially primates, has greatly improved our understanding of the afferent and efferent connections of two retinorecipient pretectal nuclei, the nucleus of the optic tract (NOT) and the pretectal olivary nucleus (PON). Functional studies of these two nuclei have further elucidated some of the roles that they play both in oculomotor control and in relaying oculomotor-related signals to visual relay nuclei. Therefore, following a brief overview of… CONTINUE READING
