Eight patients suffering from primary cerebellar degenerative diseases undertook a walkway task, demanding precise foot placement at each step, and a visual fixation task, requiring only eye movements. Step cycle and horizontal eye movements were recorded throughout the tasks and compared to those of healthy adults (including age- and sex-matched controls).(More)
BACKGROUND To understand how and why alcohol intoxication affects visually guided stepping, the eye movements and performance of 6 subjects (aged 22-35 years) were monitored as they progressed along a pathway of 18 irregularly placed stepping stones before and after consumption of an acute oral dose of alcohol. METHODS Horizontal eye movements were(More)
In order to assess the effect of rehearsal by eye movement alone on visuomotor performance, the eye movements and visually guided stepping of two cerebellar patients were monitored before and after a first and second batch of eye-movement rehearsals, in which patients made saccadic eye movements to the first 6 footfall targets (in a sequence of 18) whilst(More)
Four patients suffering from primary cerebellar degeneration and healthy matched controls undertook a test of functional mobility that demanded precise foot placement at each step. Vertical and horizontal eye movements were measured (using a head mounted eye tracking system) together with footfall patterns. Healthy subjects stepped accurately onto all(More)
