Cognition and eye movements: assessment of cerebral dysfunction

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Many neurological disorders show deficits in ocular motor function. In the past, evaluation has been limited to assessing abnormalities largely generated by pathology of the brain stem and cerebellum. In disorders that primarily or substantially, affect the cerebral hemispheres, disruption of cognitive processes occur, often early in the clinical course. While neuropsychological testing traditionally is used to measure cognitive performance, the cerebral influences on the ocular motor system provides another quantitative paradigm. This review explores the relationship between cognitive sensory processing and execution of planned ocular motor tests in Parkinson s disease, Huntingtons disease and multiple sclerosis and explores areas of clinical utility.
