Description

The Neurology of Eye Movements provides clinicians with a synthesis of current scientific information that can be applied to the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of ocular motility. Basic scientists will also benefit by description of how data from anatomical, electrophysical, pharmacological, and imaging studies can be directly applied to the study of disease. By critically reviewing such basic studies, the authors build a conceptual framework that can be applied to the interpretation of abnormal ocular motor behaviour at the bedside. These syntheses are summarised in displays, new figures, schematics and tales. Early chapters discuss the visual need and neural basis for each functional class of eye movements. Two large chapters deal with the evaluation of double vision and systematically evaluate how many disorders of the central nervous system affect eye movements. This edition has been extensively re-written, and contains many new figures and an up-to-date section on the treatment of abnormal eye movements, such as nystagmus.A major innovation has been development of an option to read the book from a DVD, making use of hypertext links (which bridge basic science to clinical issues), and view the major disorders of eye movements in over 60 actual video clips.show more
