Generation of smooth-pursuit eye movements: neuronal mechanisms and pathways.

Author information

Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute, San Francisco CA 94115.


This article reviews the current state of knowledge of the primate smooth-pursuit system. The emphasis is on the neuronal mechanisms and pathways that control pursuit eye movements in the monkey. The review covers the neuronal structures believed to be involved in pursuit generation from striate cortex to the final premotoneuron structures in the brainstem. Information gathered from physiological and anatomical work is stressed.
