This study focuses on the abnormalities of gaze control in posttraumatic cervical syndrome, and the eye-head coordination test for patients with such a syndrome. The intracellular recording from abducens and dorsal neck motoneurons and tectal neurons is discussed here, as well as the eye-head coordination in patients with posttraumatic cervical syndrome and focal lesions in the superior colliculus. The main finding is that posttraumatic cervical syndrome includes several factors, and that it is difficult to determine the symptoms of the derangement of neck structure. The results show that there is both excitatory and inhibitory cervical afferent input into the tectofugal pathways to the abducens and neck motoneurons.

Keywords:   neck motoneurons, tectal neurons, tectofugal pathways, neck structure, gaze control, cervical afferent
