optokinetic responses, the pathway(s)

Does a really great reference discussing all the different
types of optokinetic behaviors exist?  
Depending upon species, optokinetic behaviors include
   optokinetic reflex of mammals (and other terrestrials)
   optomotor reflex of fish, frogs, salamanders and other
      mixed environment animals
   (and others)

For you mammophiles,
the optomotor reflex is a whole body movement
to visual flow-field movement exhibited by these 
poikilothermic animals. These animals lack the mobile
neck of us terrestrial types

In particular, I am looking for information about the    
 neuroanatomical pathway for the optomotor reflex.
