Anesthetized cats were injected with 2% Fast Blue and 0.5% Nuclear Yellow into the intermediate and deep layers of the left and right superior colliculus, respectively. In the right caudal part of the cerebellar fastigial nucleus (cFN), double-labeling was found in 38.5% of the neurons labeled with Fast Blue, and in 11.5% of the neurons labeled with Nuclear Yellow. In the left cFN, 52.2% of the neurons labeled with Fast Blue and 11.0% of the neurons labeled with Nuclear Yellow were double-labeled. The results suggest a role of bifurcating fastigial fibers in cerebellar visual control.
