"In this chapter we describe physiologic processes and anatomic bases for the control of eye movements. Many concepts in this chapter are based on information from anatomic and physiologic experiments on monkeys, and to a lesser extent on lower animals. Since the ocular motor behavior of the monkey is similar to that of man, it is valid to use infor-mation obtained from such experimental animals to understand the control of eye movements in humans. Quantitative methods of eye movement recording in normal human subjects and patients with brain lesions, together with highresolution brain imaging, have advanced our knowledge considerably."
