Major themes of oculomotor and vestibular interest are covered in this volume, which integrates basic anatomy, neurophysiology, mathematical modeling, and clinical management of disorders. Topics include adaptation of the VOR, the development and anatomical basis for eye movement control, central processing in the vestibular nuclei and brainstem, behavior and spacial orientation, cerebellar control (especially with regard for the contribution of the deep cerebellar nuclei), coding of vestibular and eye movement signals in the parietal and frontal cortex, and vestibular and neurological syndromes. Imaging in humans and the effects of lesions of the eye muscles are emphasized. Some of the unusual aspects of this volume are the new information on anatomy of the eye muscles and the effects of eye muscle lesions on vestibular testing, neither of which has been covered in previous volumes.
