Abstract

This study tested whether smooth pursuit eye-movement dysfunctions, prevalent in a large percentage of schizophrenic patients, are distinguishable from impaired pursuit induced in normals by a distracting task. Results showed clear qualitative and quantitative distinctions between records of 23 distracted normals and those of 15 schizophrenics.
