This Annals volume presents proceedings of the conference "Basic and Clinic Ocular Motor and Vestibular Research," held as a tribute to the career of Dr. Richard John Leigh in Buenos Aires, Argentina from March 25–27, 2011.  Leigh, a world-renowned expert in the neurological control of normal and abnormal eye movements and an exemplary clinician-scientist and mentor, has significantly advanced our understanding of eye movement control systems. 

The volume features  latest research in the field from experts in ocular motor and vestibular science.  Topics covered include: ocular motor periphery; brainstem and superior colliculus control mechanisms; cerebellar control mechanisms; basal ganglia and cerebral hemisphere control mechanisms; and nystagmus and multiple sclerosis.
