The Head-Neck Sensory Motor System

This chapter studies the properties and the functional coupling of four sensory-motor subsystems that contribute to the head and eye stabilization during linear motion in the vertical plane. The problems investigated in this chapter include the way the reflexes interact and are functionally coupled and the solutions relating to the central nervous system (CNS) when the there is an impaired eye-head coordination. The dynamics of the vestibulocollic reflex, oculocollic coupling, and the compensatory eye movements are discussed here. It is concluded that tight coupling between the visual and vestibular systems in head postural control and gaze stabilization also operates during linear motion in the vertical plane.
