Intrabeat relationships between duration, amplitude and velocity of the slow phase of nystagmus and between amplitudes of the fast and slow phase of nystagmus were analysed from postrotatory responses in 10 normal subjects, using linear regression analysis. For 5 subjects, the tests were repeated five times. Highly significant correlation was found between(More)
Saccades, smooth pursuit and angular acceleration induced nystagmus were analysed quantitatively in 10 patients with speech dyspraxia. The saccades were less accurate, had a prolonged reaction time and showed a tendency to reduced peak velocity, though only contralateral to the lesion. Smooth pursuit was imparied, with a reduction in maximum velocity gain.(More)
BACKGROUND Poorly differentiated midline carcinoma with a translocation between chromosomes 15 and 19, i.e. t(15;19), has been recognized as a distinct clinical entity for over a decade. This tumor affects young individuals, shows a rapidly fatal clinical course despite intensive therapy. The t(15;19) results in the fusion oncogene BRD4-NUT. Information(More)
Five patients with a disturbance of their preprogramming of speech (dyspraxia of speech) were exposed to a comprehensive eye-motor test-battery. The saccades were found hypometric and inaccurate with irregular intervening pauses. The finding was interpreted as due to an extension of lesions from frontal cortical speech areas into visual motor cortex(More)
The intrabeat relationships between velocity, amplitude and duration of the slow phase of nystagmus as well as between amplitudes of slow vs. fast phase of nystagmus were analysed during a postrotatory nystagmus response by using linear regression analysis. Three groups of patients were studied, each consisting of 10 subjects with lesions either in the(More)
Postrotatory responses of nystagmus were analysed in an exponential model by utilizing linear regression analysis. Four nystagmus qualities (velocity and duration of slow and fast phases) were studied in 10 patients with vestibular peripheral lesions, 10 patients with frontal lobe lesions and 10 patients with brain-stem lesions, together with 10 control(More)
In 5 healthy individuals the postrotatory, exponential constants were estimated for each of the four nystagmus qualities, viz. the velocities and durations of fast and slow components. The residual spread (Sr) of each quality in a semilogarithmic plot was also determined. The value of the constant for postrotatory decay indicated a decrease of the velocity(More)
Quantification of dysrhythmia in a nystagmus response has hitherto not been seriously attempted, possibly because the nystagmus response does not easily lend itself to description in mathematical or physical terms. Ideally the nystagmus response consists of a sequence of triangles. Each such triangle is determined by four qualities, i.e. the velocities and(More)
