Recent investigations have implicated the cerebellum in oculomotor function and, in particular, in visuo-oculomotor and visuo-vestibular integration. The "visual" areas of the cerebellar vermis (lobules V-VI I ) have been. shown to contain not only a map of the visual field but also a "map" of saccadic eye movements [12], while the vestibular cerebellum has recently been found to contain units responsive to visual stimuli [8]. Although the cerebellum was long thought to receive visual input… CONTINUE READING
