A new method is described for precise recording of eye movements in freely moving animals using Hall-effect devices. This inexpensive system, of small size and low weight, allows the analysis of horizontal and vertical components of saccadic eye movements, optokinetic nystagmus, slow tracking movements, eye vergence, etc., in unrestrained animals. A set of Hall-effect devices mounted in the skull is used to sense variations in the position of high-power miniature magnets fixed to the eye sclera… CONTINUE READING
