Patterns of response characteristics of each group have been identified in 21 out of 28 cases of group a, the spontaneous nystagmus present in light was abolished by eye closure and inhibited in darkness, nystagmus being absent in the remaining five; in group b the greater proportion (70-80%) of patients presented with spontaneous nystagmus in light which was abolished by both eye closure and darkness.
