The Ocular Motor System: Normal and Clinical Studies

  • Louis F. Dell’Osso
  • B. Todd Troost


In order to give an appropriate overview of our clinical studies in the ocular motor system and to exemplify the close interaction of the clinician and the bioengineer, we will provide a review of the work of the Miami ocular motor neurophysiology laboratory, including studies on subjects and patients and the implications they hold for the control of eye movements.
