This study of two types of optokinetic nystagmus (OKN) provides evidence that previously reported pursuit impairments in schizophrenics may be due to a cortical dysfunction. Differences in responses to partial-field and full-field OKN stimuli strongly support the hypothesis that there are two functionally distinct but anatomically overlapping mechanisms(More)
This communication describes the development of a protocol for the air caloric stimulus for vestibular testing. The protocol is based on matching the peak responses of air and water caloric stimuli and minimizing subject discomfort. Air stimulus temperatures of 30 and 44 degrees C are used, and these appear to minimize subject complaints of pain with the(More)
This paper describes an experimental paradigm and a set of results which demonstrate a relationship between the level of performance on a skilled man-machine control task, the skill of the operator, the level of mental difficulty induced by an additional task imposed on the basic control task, and visual scanning performance. During a constant, simulated(More)

Sophisticated man-machine interaction often requires the human operator to perform a stereotyped scan of various instruments in order to monitor and/or control a system. For situations in which this type of stereotyped behavior exists, such as certain phases of instrument flight, scan pattern has been shown to be altered by the imposition of simultaneous(More)
