Abstract

Over the past several decades, the astute clinician has begun to augment the sensitivity of the neurologic examination with closer observation of supranuclear ocular motility. In selected circumstances, this is an extremely powerful tool that has enabled us to define a distinct nosologic entity such as progressive supranuclear palsy. This diagnosis was indelibly imprinted on neurologists' collective consciousness barely over 30 years ago, and it has raised the hope that better understanding of ocular motility will permit greater insight into many neurologic disorders. This volume of invited lectures, short communications, and abstracts underscores the immense potential utility of bringing the discoveries of the eye movement recording laboratory to the bedside.

The Ottorino Rossi Award main lecture by David Zee addresses the adaptive mechanisms of the oculomotor system to lesions of the medial longitudinal fasciculus, neuromuscular junction, cerebellar nodulus, and afferent visual pathways. His lucid exposition of diverse concepts, such
