Ocular-motor effects on the human electroencephalogram

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In response to the findings that gross vertical and horizontal eye deviation can be associated with facilitation of the human EEG alpha rhythm, an hypothesis is suggested that the deviation of gaze which exceeds a critical angle and results in a loss of subjective ocular stability is related to the occurrence of the paradoxical alpha effect.
