Identification of the Vestibulo-Ocular Reflex Dynamics

Conf Proc IEEE Eng Med Biol Soc. 2014;2014:1485-8. doi: 10.1109/EMBC.2014.6943882.


The vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) plays an important role in our daily activities by enabling us to fixate on objects during head movements. Modeling and identification of the VOR improves our insight into the system behavior and helps in diagnosing various disorders. However, the switching nature of eye movements, including the VOR, makes the dynamic analysis challenging. In this work we are using integration of subspace and prediction error methods to analyze VOR dynamics. The performance of the method is evaluated using simulation studies and experimental data.
