Neurological Eye Simulator
This application simulates eye motion and demonstrates the effects of disabling one or more of the 12 eye muscles and one or more of the 6 cranial nerves that control eye motion. The purpose of this simulator is to teach medical students and doctors how the eye motion will change with pathology of the eye muscles and cranial nerves and what to look for during a standard neurological eye exam. This
is a minor enhancement of the original neurological eye simulator
(Sept. 1999) that improves the resolution of the graphics, adds CNIII
palsy eyelid ptosis, and blue eyes. It requires the Macromedia
Shockwave plug-in 7.0 or greater!!
Virtual Patient / Neurological Eye Simulator
This latest eye simulator
has greatly improved eye motion simulation, a new pupillary eye
simulator (with virtual flashlight), animated demonstrations of
neurological eye testing with voice narrative, expanded quizzes,
and a case based interface for simulating virtual patients with
eye pathologies. This simulator requires the latest Marcomedia Shockwave
plug-in and the latest Quicktime Plug-in.
Original Eye Simulator
is the original neurological eye simulator that was developed and
placed on the web in 1997. It simulates interactive eye motion and
allows various neurological pathologies to be simulated. It requires
Shockwave plug-in 6.0 or later.
Eye Simulator Abstract
The neurological eye simulator was presented
at the World Conference on Educational Multimedia, Hypermedia &
Telecommunications EDMEDIA 1999 in Seattle, WA
San Francisco Chronicle Article
The neurological eye simulator was featured
in an article
in the science pages of the San Francisco Chronicle in 1999.
