Presentation Description : Specialized nerve endings at the myotendinous junction of extraocular muscles - the palisade endings – are thought to contribute to the fine adjustment of the eye muscles in binocular vision, by transmitting proprioceptive signals to the brain. A malfunction of this system could theoretically cause strabismus. This talk will summarize recent findings on the anatomy of palisade endings in primates, including humans. It will also address the following questions: Do palisade endings differ in number or histochemical properties between extraocular muscles? Are there changes of palisade endings during aging? Do palisade endings in specimens of extraocular muscles resected during strabismus surgery exhibit abnormalities?

This is an abstract that was submitted for the 2016 ARVO Annual Meeting, held in Seattle, Wash., May 1-5, 2016.
