Overcoming oculomotor exam difficulties in Rett syndrome

Takeaway

  • Assessment of oculomotor function in girls with Rett syndrome (RTT) is sub-optimal and could be enhanced by using fewer electrodes, changing stimuli, conducting observational studies and using virtual reality.

Why this matters

  • Modifications to electronystagmography (ENG) oculomotor testing for people with RTT could improve accuracy of examination results.
