During slow passive head turning (0,5 Hz) two systems enable sharp target at retina: smooth pursuit and vestibulo-ocular reflex. As both systems are affected in patient with CANVAS, VVOR test is positive: saccadic eye movements compensate for non functioning smooth pursuit and VOR [2].

This process, known as the vestibulo-ocular reflex, is affected by the directions sensed by the canals and the pull directions of the eye muscles.
These are assessed by performing a horizontal head impulse test (a test of vestibulo-ocular reflex function), a test for direction-changing nystagmus, and an alternating cover test to test for skew deviation.
