Abstract

The results of the present experiments indicate: (1) that kainic acid can selectively destroy neuron populations within the midbrain formation and (2) that the interstitial nucleus of Cajal participates in controlling the dynamic behavior of the vertical vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) during pitch rotations.
