Term Detail
MP term:abnormal vestibuloocular reflex
Synonym: abnormal eye reflex
Synonym: abnormal nystagmus
Synonym: abnormal ocular reflex
Synonym: abnormal vestibulo ocular reflex
Synonym: abnormal VOR
MP id: MP:0004844
Alternate id: MP:0001992, MP:0001477
Definition: any anomaly in the nystagmus or deviation of the eyes in response to stimulation of the vestibular system in which impulses are conveyed from the semicircular canals and the otolithic membrane to the oculomotor nerve; this stimulation may occur by angular acceleration or deceleration or by irrigation of the ear with hot or cold water; normally, this reflex functions to maintain a stable retinal image during head rotation by generating appropriate compensatory eye movements
