13 Chronic progressive external ophthalmoplegia (CPEO) and cerebellar signsThis is a 60-yo-woman who initially presented with imbalance and ophthalmoparesis. Initially, there was mild horizontal gaze limitation with mild gaze-evoked nystagmus and slow saccades, and over the years, gait ataxia and dysarthria (mainly a scanning quality to her speech) developed, and her ophth...Abnormal Saccades, Abnormal Range, Horizontal Gaze Palsy, Gaze Evoked Nystagmus
14 Complete peripheral vestibulopathy & ipsilateral facial palsy60-yo-man who suffered the fairly abrupt onset (over hours) of right lower motor neuron facial nerve palsy (7th cranial nerve), vertigo and deafness in the right ear (8th cranial nerve).

19 Downbeat nystagmus and convergence spasmThis is a 60-yo-woman with vertical oscillopsia related to her downbeat nystagmus, and diplopia related to an intermittent esotropia.

21 Elliptical Pendular Nystagmus in MSThis is a 40-yo-woman with MS and bilateral optic nerve disease who presented with a year's long history of oscillopsia, which was related to elliptical pendular nystagmus.

This was in accordance with Hering's law of equal innervation of the le...Myasthenia Gravis
23 Examples of patients with saccadic intrusions (square wave jerks)Seen here are patients with saccadic intrusions that do have an intersaccadic interval.
