The Daroff-Dell'Osso Ocular Motility Laboratory

An Endowed Laboratory of CASE School of Medicine and Case Western Reserve University
Located in the Louis Stokes Cleveland Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center
Cleveland, Ohio, USA

Measurement of Human Eye Movements to Study Neurological, Visual, and Vestibular Disorders; Ocular Motor System Function and Dysfunction

Areas of Specialization: Systems and Computational Neurobiology, Ocular Motor Oscillations (Nystagmus and Saccadic), Ocular Motor System Models, Nystagmus Therapies, Vision and Balance, Vestibular Function, Version-Vergence Interaction, Eye-Head Interactions, and Retinal Electrophysiology of Visual Disorders
Measurement techniques: Infrared Reflection, Magnetic Search Coil, and High-Speed Digital Video Systems to record eye movements in the horizontal, vertical and torsional planes of humans; Motion Platform and Rotating Chairs to study balance.
Off-Site Research: Because the Daroff-Dell'Osso Ocular Motility Laboratory is designed for the study of human eye movements only, any non-human studies, e.g., on canines [COMLAB] and mice, have been carried out by specific investigators at other facilities in collaboration with investigators based at those facilities.
