Contents A survey of eye movements : characteristics and teleology -- The ocular motor periphery -- The vestibular-optokinetic system -- The saccadic system -- Smooth visual tracking and fixation -- Gaze holding and the neural integrator -- The neural basis for conjugate eye movements -- Eye-head movements -- Vergence eye movements -- Diagnosis of peripheral ocular motor palsies and strabismus -- Diagnosis of nystagmus and saccadic intrusions -- Diagnosis and management of vestibular disorders -- Disorders of ocular motility due to disease of the brainstem, cerebellum, and diencephalon -- Disorders of ocular motility with disease affecting the basal ganglia, cerebral cortex, and in systemic conditions
Summary "This book has two interrelated parts. The first comprises a modern synthesis of the anatomical, physiological, and pharmacological substrate for eye movements, including current views on the reflexive and voluntary control of gaze. The second part of the book applies this synthesis to the clinical and laboratory evaluation of patients with abnormal eye movements due to a broad range of disorders - from muscular dystrophy, and genetic disorders, to dementia, including visual and vestibular conditions." -- Publisher
