This book contains the papers given at a symposium on the oculomotor system held in April, 1961, at Mt. Sinai Hospital, New York. The chapters are written by 29 authorities who present the results of their research into the oculomotor system from the neurological, psychological, and physiological standpoints. Four areas of research are stressed: (1) the anatomy of the oculomotor system; (2) electrophysiological studies of integration between visual, vestibular, and oculomotor systems; (3) psychological and physiological studies on the role of visual and vestibular functions in eye movements; and (4) clinical and pathological investigations of eye movement disorders in patients.

Symposiums stress the interests of the participants, usually resulting in emphasis of certain areas while other areas are relatively neglected. Although a modicum of this criticism can be leveled against this text, the editor, a distinguished neurologist, has done an excellent job in organizing the symposium to provide complete coverage
