Abstract:

RECENTLY DEVELOPED EYE-MOVEMENT ANALYSIS SOFTWARE WITH IMPROVED NOISE-REJECTION AND MORE GENERAL APPLICABILITY THAN COMPARABLE PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED SOFTWARE, WILL UNDERGO FIRST-STAGE CLINICAL TESTING AND FURTHER DEVELOPMENT. FROM A NORMAL POPULATION, HAND AND COMPUTER MEASUREMENTS OF CALORIC AND SPONTANEOUS/POSITIONAL NYSTAGMUS WILL BE COMPARED. ALSO, ACROSS- AND WITHIN-SUBJECT GROUPS VARIA- BILITIES OF NEW MEASUREMENTS OF CALORIC RESPONSE INTENSITY ANALYZED BY COMPUTER WILL BE COMPARED WITH STANDARD HAND MEASUREMENTS. CLINICAL DATA WILL BE COLLECTED TO ASSESS IMPROVEMENT IN TEST SENSITIVITY ACHIEVED BY THE NEW COMPUTERMEASUREMENTS OF CALORIC RESPONSE SENSITIVITY. FURTHER DEVELOPMENT AND REFINEMENT OF SOFTWARE AND INTERFACE HARD- WARE WILL PROCEED IN PARALLEL WITH THE CLINICAL STUDY. THE ULTIMATE OBJECTIVE IS TO CREATE A LOW-COST, EASY-TO-OPERATE,GENERAL-PURPOSE CLINICAL VESTIBULAR AND OCULOMOTOR TEST SYSTEM WHICH WILL USE THE NEW EYE-MOVEMENT ANALYSIS SOFTWAREAS BASIC BUILDING BLOCKS.
