- The role of the fastigial nucleus in saccadic eye oscillationsChristoph Helmchen
Department of Neurology, University of Lubeck, Lubeck, Germany
Ann N Y Acad Sci 1004:229-40. 2003..We propose that cerebellar activation of the fastigial nuclei may cause opsoclonus via their projections to the brainstem saccadic generator...

Institute of Anatomy, LMU Munich, Germany
J Comp Neurol 392:413-27. 1998..The exact identification of premotor neurons of the vertical system in the normal human brain provides a reference basis for the neuropathologic analysis of vertical gaze disorders at a cellular level...

Institute of Anatomy, LMU Munich, D 80336 Munich, Germany
J Comp Neurol 420:19-34. 2000..With these two histochemical markers, the homologue of the M-group was identified in the human brain as well...

- GABAergic neurons in the rostral mesencephalon of the macaque monkey that control vertical eye movementsAnja K E Horn
Institute of Anatomy, Ludwig Maximilians University of Munich, D 80336 Munich, Germany
Ann N Y Acad Sci 1004:19-28. 2003..These commissural GABAergic projections are well suited to inhibit the SO and IR motoneurons and possibly premotor down-burst-tonic neurons during upward eye movements...
- The contribution of midbrain circuits in the control of gazeUlrich Buuttner
Department of Neurology, Ludwig Maximilians University, D 81377 Munich, Germany
Ann N Y Acad Sci 956:99-110. 2002..Thus, the direction of torsional nystagmus appears to be a valuable topodiagnostic sign for patients with midbrain lesions...

Department of Neurology, University Lübeck, Ratzeburger Allee 160, 23538, Lubeck, Germany
Exp Brain Res 156:314-24. 2004..Whether the effects are caused by the influence of blinks on OPNs or other premotor structures remains to be tested...

Department of Neurology, University Lübeck, Ratzeburger Allee 160, D 23538 Lubeck, Germany
J Neurosci Methods 170:305-9. 2008..This advanced method allows new applications like eye movement recordings during sleep (rapid eye movements) or perceptional or motor learning tasks, e.g. saccade adaptation paradigms...
- Main sequence of convergence retraction nystagmus indicates a disorder of vergenceHolger Rambold
Department of Neurology, , , Germany
Ann N Y Acad Sci 956:592-4. 2002
- Blink effect on slow vergenceHolger Rambold
Department of Neurology, University of Luebeck, Ratzeburger Allee 160, D 23538 Luebeck, Germany
Neuroreport 13:2041-4. 2002..We propose that the direction-specific blink effect on slow vergence may be caused by changes in brain stem premotor circuits...
- Vergence deficits in pontine lesionsHolger Rambold
Department of Neurology, University of Luebeck, Germany
Neurology 62:1850-3. 2004..Slow convergence and divergence were impaired, whereas fast vergence did not differ from that of control subjects. Pontine nuclei appear to be involved in the slow vergence control...
- Effect of 3,4-diaminopyridine on the postural control in patients with downbeat nystagmusAndreas Sprenger
Department of Neurology, , Germany
Ann N Y Acad Sci 1039:395-403. 2005..It was concluded that 3,4-DAP may particularly influence the postural performance in patients with downbeat nystagmus...
- Effect of blinks on saccades before smooth-pursuit eye-movement initiationHolger Rambold
Department of Neurology, University of Luebeck, Ratzeburger Allee 160, 23538 Luebeck, Germany
Ann N Y Acad Sci 1039:563-6. 2005..The source of blink associated suppression of saccades remains unclear but is probably not caused by visual signals or the omnipause neurons...
- Eye-hand coordination in essential tremorPeter Trillenberg
Department of Neurology, University Hospital of Schleswig Holstein, Lubeck, Germany
Mov Disord 21:373-9. 2006..These changes might be related to cerebellar disease but they are independent of the intention tremor component and saccade performance...
