Attention to threat in PTSD as indexed by eye-tracking indices: a systematic review

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition triggered by a terrifying event that was either witnessed or experienced. Patients often suffer from a heightened attention bias, which may lead to perceiving benign stimuli, for example, visual/auditory cues that vaguely resemble the original trauma stimulus, as threatening, and therefore experiencing symptoms such as severe […]

Assessment of Cognitive Impairment, such as Alzheimer’s Disease, Using Eye Tracking Technology

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is an irreversible, progressive neurodegenerative disease that slowly destroys brain cells, affecting memory, thinking and behavior. While there is no cure, treatments that could temporarily slow disease progression are available. Early diagnosis and timely intervention may make an impact on the quality of life of the affected individuals.  However, often, both diagnosis […]

Eye-tracking as a potential biomarker for autism

The Autism Biomarkers Consortium for Clinical Trials is a multisite study specifically designed to evaluate a set of promising electrophysiological and eye-tracking (ET) methodologies as candidate biomarkers for autism spectrum disorder (ASD). ET task uses pupillary reflex measurements and gaze monitoring under different visual tasks, to identify specific features associated with ASD. Two recent publications […]

Improving eye vergence function in persons with Parkinson’s disease

Eye-tracking tools can support clinicians in the management of Parkinson’s Disease (PD) patients. Over 30 years of research has shown that PD profoundly impacts the control of eye movements. These include: pupil reactivity, smooth pursuit, saccadic movements, optokinetic response, and vergence [1-3]. Recently, research examining the ability to improve vergence eye impairments and related symptoms. […]

Saccadic intrusions in paediatric concussion – is there a link to academic performance?

A recent case report study identified saccadic intrusions present only during smooth pursuit and not during fixation, in children 10 to 15 years old who suffered a concussion. Saccadic instructions are involuntary conjugate saccades that interrupt fixation, a common symptom post mTBI. The study concluded that Gabapentin treatment reduced the magnitude of saccadic intrusions and […]
