The investigation is concerned with the relationship between electro-oculographic potentials (EOG) and the alpha rhythm in hemiplegic attentionally handicapped subjects. It is thought that the alpha rhythm is temporally related to the EOG. Twenty-eight normal and 36 spatic-hemiplegic subjects with attentional handicaps were studied. Alpha rhythm and the EOG were measured and experimentally varied by changes in illumination and by stabilized retinal image techniques. The results are consistent with the hypotheses and indicated that deviant patterns of scanning and fixation saccadic eye movements may be important components in attentional handicaps.
