The Oculomotor System, written by 29 authorities engaged in diversified phases of experimental and clinical ocular motility research, is the outgrowth of a symposium held at the Mount Sinai Hospital, New York City on April 14 and 15, 1961, under the sponsorship of the National Institute of Neurologic Diseases and Blindness.

The book encompasses most of the important investigational aspects of eye movements. Problems dealing with strabismic oculomotor imbalance and pupillary-accommodative reactions are only briefly touched upon. In the animal the effects of electrical stimulation and ablative lesions as well as the results of single-cell electrical monitoring under various combinations of visual, labyrinthine, and auditory input are reported. Anatomical considerations include cerebral representation of eye movements, brain stem vestibular connections, and an altered view as to the representation within the oculomotor nuclei of the individual extraocular muscles supplied by the third cranial nerve. Psychophysiological experiments deal with eye movements during
