Most neonates are capable of locating and briefly fixing a moving target, and the eyes can move in a coarsely conjugate fashion. Thus, the refixation reflex, although unstable, appears to be present at birth, despite the fact that in the first months of life the fovea is still poorly differentiated. The conjugate fixation reflex, where the eyes learn to move together during versions, is the first reflex by which the eyes move binocularly and develops from 2 to 3 weeks of age. The disjugate fixation reflex allows binocular vision to be maintained through the range of vergence movements that follow changes of fixation distance and develops from 2 to 3 months of age.

2002). The INC also receives input from vestibular nuclei, the cerebellum (particularly the dorsal vermis) and the contralateral INC (King et al. 1981). Fibres pass from the vestibular nuclei for vertical eye movements to encode eye position signal and head velocity signal. These fibres are position-vestibular-pause cells (PVP). Medial vestibular nuclei and NPH contribute to vertical gaze holding but only to a small extent (Cannon & Robinson 1987) (Fig. 1). Smooth pursuit system Smooth pursuits are slow eye movements under a control system capable of continuous modification of motor output in response to visual input (Chen et al.

PPRF, paramedian pontine reticular formation; VI, sixth nerve nucleus; III, third nerve nucleus; IV, fourth nerve nucleus; riMLF, rostral interstitial nucleus of the medial longitudinal fasciculus; INC, interstitial nucleus of Cajal.
