    NEUROBIOLOGY OF EYE MOVEMENTS: FROM MOLECULES TO BEHAVIOR
    A New York Academy of Sciences Conference

    Co-sponsored with: Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and
    University Hospitals of Cleveland

    October 4-6, 2001, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio

    CONFERENCE THEME: The ocular motor system is the best understood of all
    motor systems; the depth of this understanding ranges from molecular
    genetics to abnormal behavior due to neurological disease. This conference
    will explore the latest discoveries in how the brain and the peripheral
    motor system generate eye movements. Topics will include: the extraocular
    muscles and orbital tissues; brainstem and cerebellar mechanisms for
    controlling gaze; cerebral and basal ganglionic influences on gaze control;
    binocular aspects of gaze control; and, vertigo, nystagmus and other
    disorders that disrupt clear vision. The format of the conference will
    involve in-depth presentations from invited speakers and a poster session.
    This conference will be of interest to basic and clinical scientists,
    neurologists, ophthalmologists, neurosurgeons, biomedical engineers,
    neuroscientists, geneticists, and others who have research interests in this
    area.
