Eye Movements Can Help Diagnose ADHD, Parkinson's

PsychCentral.com

Studying how people move their eyes while watching television could help identify those who have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD), and Parkinson's disease, according to a new study.

Such dysfunctions can be easily — and cheaply — identified through an evaluation of how patients move their eyes while they watch television.
