Abstract

The investigators explored the relationship between hyporesponsive postrotary nystagmus and subnormal visual motor control skill in emotionally disturbed children. Twenty-three emotionally disturbed children were administered an array of psychological and neuropsychological examinations, including the Bender Visual Motor Gestalt Test, and Beery Visual Motor Integration Test, and the Southern California Postrotary Nystagmus Test. Children with short nystagmus durations appeared to exhibit problems in visual motor control. Complexities involving a number of extraneous variables necessitate caution in interpreting these results, but the data provide evidence of a relationship between vestibular function as measured by postrotary nystagmus duration and oculomotor control in children with emotional disorders.
