Abstract

Analysis of saccadic eye movements is a fundamental task for the study of different neurological disorders. The Center of Research and Rehabilitation of Hereditary Ataxias (CIRAH) located in Holguín, Cuba; uses this technique in order to study the evolution of many different ataxias. Nevertheless, current available software applications do not fill the requirements needed by the CIRAH’s staff to complete their processing protocol, as they do not run in modern operating systems or are poorly usable. EogStudio was created with the objective of filling the gap left by these applications. It is signal processing platform based on extensible plugins that meet the requirements made by CIRAH’s researchers. For the processing and determination of the significative points of the saccadic eye movements, soft computing techniques, such as independent component analysis, were applied.
