Alexander's law

Jump to: navigation, search


Alexander's law states that in individuals with nystagmus, the amplitude of the nystagmus increases when the eye moves in the direction of the fast phase (saccade). Alexander's law is manifested during spontaneous nystagmus in a patient bearing a vestibular lesion. The nystagmus becomes more intense when the patient looks in the quick-phase than in the slow-phase direction.
