Description

In this video Darren Whelan discusses the advances being made in the ability to measure complex eye movements and how this can assist in detecting complex central vestibular conditions. Darren presents a case study which shows how recording pro-saccade and anti-saccade eye movements (saccadometry) reveals evidence of a central condition in the presence of normal traditional VNG and saccade testing results.
