The ocular motor system is the best understood of all motor systems; the depth of this understanding ranges from molecular genetics to abnormal behavior due to neurological disease. The papers in this volume explore the latest discoveries in how the brain and the peripheral motor system generate eye movements. Topics include the extraocular muscles and orbital tissues, brainstem and cerebellar mechanisms for controlling gaze, cerebral and basal ganglionic influences on gaze control, binocular aspects of gaze control, and vertigo, nystagmus and other disorders that disrupt clear vision.
