Science Qbook #868

Post by LB8* » Tue Apr 21, 2020 6:27 pm

I'm having trouble understanding the explanation for 868.

868. what structure is least likely to be damaged in a group of patients that have difficulty focusing on fixed objects? While I got the correct answer, in the explanation is says "inferior colliculus is mentioned which helps keep the eyes focused on the singular points even when the head is rotating". I thought inferior colliculus was involved with localizing sound and superior involved focusing visually on objects?

You are totally correct, this is a typo and should say "superior colliculus". Good catch!
