Saccadic eye movements and nystagmus are 2 types of fast eye movements. Slow eye movements are smooth pursuit, vestibular, optokinetic, and vergence. Reflexive and voluntary conjugate eye movements incorporate cortical, subcortical (basal ganglia), and vestibulocerebellar input to the final common pathways of horizontal and vertical eye movements. This chapter reviews the anatomy and dysfunction of the supranuclear input to conjugate gaze.
