"Central eye movement disorders – a window to brain function"
We are honored to announce the third and final lecture in the series managed by a International Respected Expert: Prof. Soumit Dasgupta, Consultant Audiovestibular Physician/Neurotologist and Clinical Lead in Paediatric Audiology, Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, Liverpool.
A primary attribute for proper functioning in life is gaze stabilisation. This enables a subject to track objects, orient in space and perceive a three dimensional existence. Since control of eye movements in the brain is highly site and topography specific, different abnormalities indicate the site of lesion in different areas of brain that are extremely sensitive and may predate imaging findings. To date more than 50 different eye movements are known, all of which tell a story and leads to a concrete diagnosis of neurological pathology.
This lecture discusses these eye movements with the author’s personal collection of more than 80 abnormal eye movements.
