[Character of age-related changes of saccadic eye movements in patients with multiple sclerosis].

Abstract

On the basis of the analysis of electrooculografy traces of saccadic eye movements, the quantitative estimation of static and dynamic parameters of visual and auditory saccades, and small a, Cyrillicntisaccades in regard with age was carried out in 62 patients with multiple sclerosis and 163 healthy controls. The significant increase (p< or =0,05) of saccadic latency was observed in older controls compared to younger ones and in patients with multiple sclerosis compared to age-matched controls. The differences in saccadic latency, duration, accuracy, peak velocity and other parameters are discussed in the aspect of their association with processes of development, myelination and aging of visual and central nervous system.
