Monkeys with mid-brain lesions involving the pre-tectum and superior colliculi often have an odd stare, as if the visual axes were parallel and the animal was looking into the distance. Such a visuomotor abnormality could lead to double-vision for objects close to the animal. The experiments reported here were designed to test this hypothesis of diplopia in monkeys with combined bilateral ablations of the colliculi and frontal eye-fields (area 8). These animals performed better on a task of v...Expand abstract
