The article discusses the contributions of Henri Parinaud, a French ophthalmologist in the domain of ophthalmology. Parinaud deduced there was a central system for the conjugate eye movements, and thought that the abducens nerve and the contralateral oculomotor nerve must have a connection in man, though he did not implicate the medial longitudinal bundle. In his 10 case histories, he distinguished two groups: the partial or dissociated paresis of both oculomotor nerves; and conjugate eye movement disorders.
