ISCN 2022 Speaker Highlight - Dr. Jeremy Schmoe
Clinical Applications of the Optokinetic System
Jeremy Schmoe, DC, DACNB, FACFN, FABBIR
Dr. Schmoe will be discussing clinical applications of the human Optokinetic system. The presentation will review areas of the brain that are involved in the OKN response, how to evaluate OKN at the bedside and what to look for when there is dysfunction associated with brain trauma, central vestibular dysfunction, cervical spine dysfunction and dysautonomia. Assessment utilizing VNG will be discussed comparing small field OKN vs large field OKN responses and how directions given to the patient can affect responses. Areas of the brain that are activated with OPK stimulation will be discussed as well as areas which are deactivated. The use of virtual reality in OKN training for a variety of neurological conditions will be discussed as well as speed, direction, fixation and other unique clinical applications. Examples of OKN responses will be shown in patients with ABI, TBI, whiplash, strabismus, cerebellar disorders and metabolic syndromes.
