Stimulation studies in the cat have shown that the afferent fibers for the oculorespiratory reflex travel with the motor nerves intraorbitalhj, but join the ophthalmic division of the fifth cranial nerve within the cavernous sinus. Degeneration studies confirm that these afferents join the fifth nerve in the cavernous sinus. From the size, number, and distribution of these nerves, it is concluded that this represents a major afferent pathway from the extraocular muscles to the brainstem
