We conducted an unmasked evaluation of transdermal scopolamine in seven patients with acquired nystagmus for whom other treatments had been unsatisfactory. We measured eye speed and visual acuity before and several hours after starting treatment. Median eye speed decreased slightly in three patients but increased in two; no change in visual acuity occurred(More)
Shifts of the point of fixation between two targets aligned on one eye that are located near and far (Müller paradigm) stimulates a combined saccadic-vergence movement. In normal subjects, this test paradigm often induces saccadic oscillations of about 0.3 degrees at 20 to 30 Hz. We measured eye movements using the magnetic search coil technique in 2(More)
Recent studies of functional connectivity based upon blood oxygen level dependent functional magnetic resonance imaging have shown that this technique allows one to investigate large-scale functional brain networks. In a previous study, we advocated that data-driven measures of effective connectivity should be developed to bridge the gap between functional(More)
We measured gaze stability in darkness of four normal humans using the search coil technique. Subjects were tested first with their heads erect, and then with their heads positioned 180 degrees upside-down. In each position, subjects held their head stationary for one minute, and then actively performed pitch rotations for 20 sec. All subjects showed(More)
SUMMARY We used ocular motility recordings to identify the characteristics of a rare combination of conjugate, horizontal jerk, and pendular nystagmus in a 9-year-old boy. The clinical diagnoses were amblyopia, left esotropia, congenital nystagmus, and an apparently uniocular pendular nystagmus that mimicked spasmus nutans. Ocular motility recordings(More)
Atlases constructed using diffusion-weighted imaging are important tools for studying human brain development. Atlas construction is in general a two-step process involving spatial registration and fusion of individual images. The focus of most studies so far has been on improving the accuracy of registration while image fusion is commonly performed using(More)
The gain of the human vestibuloocular reflex (VOR) is influenced by the proximity of the object of regard. In six human subjects, we measured the eye rotations induced by passive, sinusoidal, horizontal head rotations at 2.0 Hz during binocular fixation of a stationary far target at 7 m; a stationary target close to the subject's near point of fixation (<15(More)
