Optokinetic nystagmus as an assessment of visual attention to divided stimuli
Attentional resources are finite and decline with age. We measured subjects' abilities to generate optokinetic nystagmus (OKN), to suppress it with fixation and to continue to suppress it when fixating while simultaneously paying covert attention to a feature of the optokinetic (OK) stimulus. During fixation with a red laser spot, OKN was almost fully suppressed. When subjects suppressed the OKN while simultaneously paying covert attention to a feature of the OK stimulus, suppression of the OKN...[Show more]
