Smooth pursuit eye movements (SPEMs), voluntary saccadic eye movements (VSEMs), and neuropsychological test (Touluse-Pieron Test and Wisconsin Card Sorting Test) performance were studied in 23 patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder and 27 age-matched normal control subjects. The patients performed more poorly than the control subjects on the SPEM and, to a lesser degree, VSEM measures. They also showed impairment on some aspects of the neuropsychological tests. No relationship was found between eye movement performance and neuropsychological impairment.

Abstract

Smooth pursuit eye movements (SPEMs), voluntary saccadic eye movements (VSEMs), and neuropsychological test (Touluse-Pieron Test and Wisconsin Card Sorting Test) performance were studied in 23 patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder and 27 age-matched normal control subjects. The patients performed more poorly than the control subjects on the SPEM and, to a lesser degree, VSEM measures. They also showed impairment on some aspects of the neuropsychological tests. No relationship was found between eye movement performance and neuropsychological impairment.
