Ocular Motor Fixation Deficits in Friedreich Ataxia

Friedreich ataxia (FRDA) is the most common genetic cause of ataxia with a prevalence of approximately 1 in 29,000. Ocular motor abnormalities are common in FRDA and include fixation instability, saccadic dysmetria, and vestibular dysfunction. It has not yet been determined whether aspects of spatial attention, which are closely coupled to eye movements, are similarly compromised in FRDA. This study examined attentional engagement and disengagement of eye movements in FRDA using a gap overlap task.
