Question Paralyzed, can move eyes vertically but not laterally

A 42-year-old man is brought to the emergency after being found unconscious. After stabilizing the patient, P/E revealed that the patient is completely paralyzed without response to voice or pain. When his eyelids are propped opened, he can respond to questions by moving his eyes upward for "yes" and downward for "no." He is unable to move his eyes laterally. A CT angiography study of his head and neck reveals a large occlusive thrombus. Lesion in which of the following parts of brain would best account for this patient's presentation?

A) Thalamus
B) Frontal and temporal cortex
C) Pons
D) Basal ganglia
E) Cerebellum
F) Hypothalamus
