optictractnucleus The common result of long-term suppression of an amblyopic eye
hypothalamus Midbrain structure that controls the vestibular-ocular reflex
parvocellular Human LGN cells are different than feline LGN cells because they are...
strabismus The equivalent of the optic tectum in frogs, controls reflex foveation
magnocellular Brain structure that integrates spatial coding and feature binding
ipsilateral Brain structure that looks like a salmon steak when you slice it
koniocellular Brain structure that controls circadian rhythms, mood and behavior

pretectum Describes ennervation to layers 2, 3, and 5 of the LGN
nystagmus Poor fixation expected to reduce acuity (or because of reduced acuity) in ocular albinism
monocular A LSD flashback might tigger this mixing of the senses
superiorcolliculus These LGN cells see lower spatial frequency better
