An introduction to the physiology and pathophysiology of eye movements
Accurate eye movements are critical for functional movements and a stable perception of the visual world. This presentation will discuss the neural control of different types of eye movements and how they are affected by lesions to the central nervous system. It will outline how an assessment of eye movements can support clinical decision making and describe current evidence
for the effects of rehabilitation.
