Abstract:

A new procedure was developed to analyse oculomotor responses to many forms of vestibular andor visual stimuli used in experimental work and in clinical practice. The main advantage of the procedure lies in the simplicity of the basic algorithm which enables fairly rapid data analysis of a variety of response forms on a medium-speed computer working in a high-level language. For slow phase analysis, detection of saccades is carried out by a simple threshold procedure based upon the expected response form, and regression procedures are used to obtain stimulus-response correlation and slope gain measures. The procedure provides measures of gain, phase, and directional preponderance for responses to sinusoidal stimuli. Author
