1. We report the complex-spike responses of two groups of Purkinje cells (P-cells). The cell were classified according to their simple-spike firing during smooth eye movements evoked by visual and vestibular stimuli with the use of established criteria (Lisberger and Fuchs 1978; Stone and Lisberger 1990). During pursuit with the head fixed, ipsi gaze-velocity P-cells (GVP-cells) showed increased simple-spike firing when gaze moved toward the side of the recording, whereas down GVP-cells showed… CONTINUE READING
