Figure 2: Pathway of voluntary saccade. Frontal eye field, supplementary eye field, and prefrontal cortex are involved in the generation of voluntary saccades by stimulating the caudate nucleus. It causes inhibition of unwanted saccades by direct inhibition of the superior colliculus. Lesion at the frontostriatal pathway affects voluntary saccade generation. PPRF: paramedian pontine reticular formation; riMLF: rostral interstitial nucleus of medial longitudinal fasciculus
