Ocular motor measures of cognitive dysfunction in multiple sclerosis I: inhibitory control

Abstract Our ability to control and inhibit behaviours that are inappropriate, unsafe, or no longer required is crucial for functioning successfully in complex environments. Here, we investigated whether a series of ocular motor (OM) inhibition tasks could dissociate deficits in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), including patients with only a probable diagnosis (clinically isolated syndrome: CIS), from healthy individuals as well as a function of increasing disease duration. 25 patients with CIS, 25 early clinically definite MS patients (CDMS: ≤7 years of diagnosis), 24 late CDMS patients (>7 years from diagnosis), and 25 healthy controls participated. All participants completed a series of classic OM inhibition tasks [antisaccade (AS) task, memory-guided (MG) task, en…
