Title Normal Vertical Eye Movements
Subject Normal Vertical Eye Movements; Vertical Saccades
Description The brain stem pathway for vertical saccades involves the PPRF, rostral interstitial nucleus of the medial longitudinal fasciculus (riMLF), nucleus of Cajal, and the nuclei of cranial nerves III and IV. For upgaze, projections from the riMLF traverse through the posterior commissure, whereas there are direct downgaze projections from the riMLF to cranial nerve nuclei III and IV. These differences explain why lesions causing upgaze paralysis are less specific to a particular region than those causing downgaze paralysis.
