  2. Definitions
    1. Conjugate Gaze
      1. Movement of both eyes in the same direction at the same time
  3. Anatomy: Innervation
    1. Cerebral Cortex
      1. Voluntary Conjugate Gaze (Brodmann's Area 8)
      2. Involuntary Conjugate Gaze (Areas 17-19)
    2. Cranial Nerves
      1. CN 3 (nucleus in Midbrain)
      2. CN 4 (nucleus in Midbrain)
      3. CN 6 (nucleus in pons)
    3. Nucleii and Pathways
      1. Lateral Gaze Center (Pontine Paramedian Reticular Formation, Paraabducens Nucleus)
        1. Responsible for horizontal gaze and saccade eye movements
        2. Facilitates Conjugate Gaze by synapsing with contralateral fibers for coordinated eye movements
      2. Medial Longitudinal Fasciculus
        1. Transmits signals between CN 3, CN 4 and CN 6 to coordinate eye movements
        2. Example
          1. Cortical signal from voluntary gaze center directs left eye to look left
          2. Left eye CN 6 (lateral rectus) fires for the left eye to look left
          3. CN 6 signals Synapse with the Lateral Gaze Center
          4. Signals are transmitted via Medial Longitudinal Fasciculus to CN 3 (medial rectus)
          5. Medial rectus directs the right eye to also look left
  4. Anatomy: Extraocular Muscles: Innervated by CN 3 with 2 exceptions
    1. Medial Range of Motion
      1. Medial Rectus (Cranial Nerve III)
    2. Lateral Range of Motion
      1. Lateral Rectus (Cranial Nerve VI)
    3. Upward Range of Motion
      1. Superior Rectus (Cranial Nerve III)
      2. Inferior Oblique (Cranial Nerve III)
    4. Downward Range of Motion
      1. Inferior Rectus (Cranial Nerve III)
      2. Superior Oblique (Cranial Nerve IV)

Oculomotor nerve structure (C0028864)

Definition (FMA) Cranial nerve which connects the midbrain to the extra-ocular and intra-ocular muscles.
Definition (UWDA) Cranial nerve which connects the midbrain to the extra-ocular and intra-ocular muscles.
Definition (NCI_CDISC) The third cranial nerve.
Definition (MSH) The 3d cranial nerve. The oculomotor nerve sends motor fibers to the levator muscles of the eyelid and to the superior rectus, inferior rectus, and inferior oblique muscles of the eye. It also sends parasympathetic efferents (via the ciliary ganglion) to the muscles controlling pupillary constriction and accommodation. The motor fibers originate in the oculomotor nuclei of the midbrain.
Definition (CSP) third cranial nerve; sends motor fibers to the levator muscles of the eyelid and to the superior rectus, inferior rectus, and inferior oblique muscles of the eye; sends parasympathetic efferents (via the ciliary ganglion) to the muscles controlling pupillary constriction and accommodation; motor fibers originate in the oculomotor nuclei of the midbrain.
