  • Publication number: 20200146611
    Abstract: A system and method of detecting eye movements of a subject for the diagnosis of neurological disorders. The method includes tracking eye movements of the subject, identifying microsaccades from the tracked eye movements, and characterizing microsaccade dynamics of the identified microsaccades to determine one or more parameters, such as microsaccade direction, microsaccade velocity, microsaccade magnitude, microsaccadic peak velocity-magnitude relationship, microsaccade duration, and intersaccadic intervals. The method also includes comparing the one or more determined parameters with a corresponding control parameter, assessing the comparison to determine differences between the one or more determined parameters and the corresponding control parameters, and generating a report including the diagnosis of neurological disorder based on the assessment.

  • Patent number: 8851669
    Abstract: The invention relates to a device for rehabilitating and/or causing binocular motivity through sensory stimulation of a patient, said device including a planar stand (10) that is defined by a longitudinal axis of symmetry (AA?), the stand (10) including a plurality of means for transmitting at least one sensory stimulus, said transmission means including means for viewing a visual stimulus (101-136) and means for transmitting an auditory stimulus adjacent to the means for viewing a visual stimulus. The transmission means are evenly arranged along isovergence arcs (201-204) that are placed along the stand (10). Said device moreover includes a control system (20) that is at least intended for controlling the transmission of said at least one sensory stimulus (101-136).
