Researchers at USC have devised a method for detecting certain neurological disorders through the study of eye movements.

In a study plublished on Aug. 30 in the Journal of Neurology, researchers claim that because Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) and Parkinson’s Disease each involve ocular control and attention dysfunctions, they can be easily identified through and evaluation of how patients move their eyes while they watch television.
