This book represents a compendium of the symposium, sponsored by the US Public Health Service, held in 1961 at the Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. It is an academic volume that has more appeal for those engaged in research and education in the fields of ophthalmology, neurology, and otology than those engaged in the clinical practice of medicine. It has been written by 29 authorities, world reknown for their investigative contributions.
The topics discussed in this book cover four general areas of research: the anatomy of the oculomotor pathways, the cerebrum and brainstem; electrophysiological studies of integration between the visual vestibular and oculomotor systems; psychologic and physiologic experimentation on a number of functions in eye movements; and clinicopathologic studies of eye movements in patients with dysfunctions of the nervous system.
