Central positional nystagmus simulated by a mathematical ocular motor model of otolith-dependent modification of Listing's plane.

To find an explanation of the mechanisms of central positional nystagmus in neurological patients with posterior fossa lesions, we developed a three-dimensional (3-D) mathematical model to simulate head position-dependent changes in eye position control relative to gravity. This required a model implementation of saccadic burst generation, of the neural… CONTINUE READING
