Example text

It receives an inhibitory input from omnipause neurons of the nucleus raphe interpositus (RIP), which lies in the pons (for clarity, this projection is shown only for upward movements). Excitatory burst neurons in the riMLF project to the motoneurons of CN III and CN IV and send axon collatera ls to the INC. Each riMLF neuron sends axon colla terals to yoke-pair muscles (Hering's lawl. Projections to the elevator subnuclei (innerva ting the superior rectus and inferior oblique muscles) may be bilateral because of axon collatera ls crossing at the level of the CN III nucleus.

This peaked, mushroomshaped structure is divided into 6 levels. The 4 superior levels are the termin i of P-cell axons, which are the ganglion cell s with smaller receptive fields that are responsible for med iating maximal spatial resolution and color perception. The 2 inferior layers receive input from the M-cell fibers, which are the ga nglion cells with larger receptive fields that are more sensitive to detecting 1110tion. Axons originating in th e cont ralateral eye ter- minate in layers I, 4, and 6; the ipsilate ral fibe rs innervate 2, 3, and 5.
