56 Evaluation of ConvergenceThe assessment of convergence includes measuring alignment at near versus distance (see video, https://collections.lib.utah.edu/details?id=187677), near point of convergence and convergence amplitude.

57 Evaluation of auditory function using Rinne and Weber testsThe Rinne test is an assessment of auditory thresholds to air and bone conduction of sound. The Weber test is a comparison of bone conducted sound of either ear. Conductive hearing loss results in a loss of air conducted greater than bone conducted sound, whereas sensorineural hearing loss results...Auditory Testing

64 Gaze-evoked and rebound nystagmus in a cerebellar syndrome30-yo-man with the subacute onset of a cerebellar syndrome. After extensive evaluation and progression, it was thought that this represented an autoimmune process and there was some improvement with immunosuppression. He had a variety of cerebellar ocular motor findings, including gaze-evoked nystag...Jerk nystagmus; End-gaze nystagmus; Gaze-evoked nystagmus; Rebound nystagmus; Cerebellar pathology
65 HINTS exam and saccadic dysmetria in lateral medullary strokeThis is a 50-year-old who experienced the abrupt onset of prolonged vertigo following chiropractic therapy 2 months prior.
