Vestibulo-ocular reflex and optokinetic nystagmus in adult cats reared in stroboscopic illumination

Abstract

Cats reared in stroboscopic illumination (strobe reared cats) have been found to have abnormal eye movements. Visual and vestibular evoked compensatory eye movements were inefficient. Vestibuloocular reflex in the dark had a maximum gain of 0.6 (1.0 in normal animals). Optokinetic nystagmus had a mean gain which approached unity only at stimulus velocities… (More)
