Activity in the SC drives the saccade burst generators which are oculomotor neurons in the reticular formation.

Tabareau et al. propose a scheme for a transformation from the topographic mapping in the SC to the temporal code of the saccadic burst generators.

According to their analysis, that code needs to be either linear or logarithmic.

Omnipause neurons in the reticular formation tonically inhibit `the saccade-generation circuit'.

The superior colliculus sends motor commands to cerebellum and reticular formation in the brainstem.

The cerebellum sends motor commands to the reticular formation

It is the reticular formation that initiates saccades.
