Control of Eye Movements

Title: Control of the Eye Movements: Neuroanatomy Video Lab – Brain Dissections
Author: Suzanne Stansaas, PhD, Department of Neurobiology and Anatomy, University of Utah
Date: 2015
Keywords/Main Subjects: Eye Movements; Neuroanatomy
Diagnosis: NA
Brief Description: Disturbances in eye movements can provide important clues for localization of neurological damage. The role of the frontal eye fields in horizontal gaze is stressed. The need to coordinate cranial nerves on both sides of the brain stem introduces the medial longitudinal fasciculus and its role in coordinating CN 3 and 6. Interruption of this pathway results in internuclear ophthalmoplegia and nystagmus both of which are demonstrated with a clinical video.
