Lueck, C. J. and Tanyeri, S. and Crawford, Trevor and Henderson, L. and Kennard, C. (1990) Antisaccades and remembered saccades in Parkinson's disease. Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry, 53 (4). pp. 284-288. ISSN 0022-3050Full text not available from this repository.
Antisaccades were studied in ten patients with mild to moderate Parkinson's disease and ten age-matched normal controls. Remembered saccades and reflex saccades were assessed for comparison. In the population of patients who showed the previously reported abnormalities of remembered saccades, antisaccades were indistinguishable from those of controls in latency, gain and peak velocity. This finding implies that antisaccades are mediated through pathways which are unaffected by Parkinson's disease, and which are therefore presumably distinct from pathways mediating other voluntary saccades.
