Description

If a spinal injury has not been ruled out, a comatose patient’s extra-ocular movements can be examined by testing for the oculovestibular reflex. An animation of normal response and abnormal response is shown.

This animation is taken from “Brain Death Exam” by Drs. Urion and Tasker. Additional illustrations/animations from this video can be found here.
