Özet

Objectives: Though still unclear cerebellar involvement is accepted as the underlying pathophysiological mechanism of at least advanced stages of essential tremor ( ET). Eye movement abnormalities supporting this hypothesis have been reported. We tried to investigate saccadic and pursuit eye movements in ET patients at an early stage of the disease (mean disease duration 20.35 +/- 10.51 months).
