Abstract

Objective: The authors tested the hypothesis that eye tracking disorder in schizophrenia is associated with neurological signs. Method: Thesubjects were 93 normal comparison subjects and 59 schizophrenic patients. They were evaluated with the Neurological Evaluation Scale, a standardized rating instrument that assesses sensory integration, motor coordination, sequencing of complex motor acts, and other neurologicalsigns. Also, the schizophrenic patients' smooth-pursuit eye movementswere tested in response to a 0.3-Hz sinusoidal target by means of infrared oculography. They were divided into those with (N=18) and without (N=41) eye tracking disorder by using a previously described method,which was based on mixture analysis of the distribution of position root mean square error. Results: The patients with eye tracking disorder had significantly worse performance than the patients without eye tracking disorder with respect to sensory integration, and the effect size was moderate to large. In comparison with the normal subjects, bothpatient subgroups had significantly worse performance on all of the Neurological Evaluation Scale subscales. Conclusions: Although neurological signs are present generally in schizophrenia, poor sensory integration is particularly pronounced in patients with eye tracking disorder. A review of the literature shows that the two abnormalities have strikingly similar patterns of validators, including 1) familial aggregation, 2) premorbid presence, 3) syndromal specificity 4) trait status,and 5) association with the deficit syndrome. Poor sensory integration and eye tracking disorder in schizophrenia may be various manifestations of a common, underlying pathophysiological process.
