Supranuclear centers for controlling eye movements

Supranuclear centers for controlling eye movements: These allow exact topographical determination: lesions in the region of the interstitial nucleus of Cajal (INC) lead to a vertical gaze-holding defect, lesions in the region of the rostral interstitial nucleus of the the medial longitudinal fasciculus (rilMF) leads to impairments of vertical saccades, lesions of the paramedian pontine reticular formation (PPRF) result in impairments of the horizontal saccades, lesions of the nucleus prepositus hypoglossi (NPH) are characterized by a horizontal gaze-holding defect | Strupp, M., Hüfner, K., Sandmann, R., Zwergal, A., Dieterich, M., Jahn, K., & Brandt, T.
