Shaikh A, Wilmot G. Opsoclonus in a patient with increased titers of anti-GAD antibody provides proof for the conductance-based model of saccadic oscillations. J Neurol Sci. 2016;362:169-73 pubmed publisher
..We propose that opsoclonus might be due to increased levels of glutamate and subsequent hyperexcitability of excitatory and inhibitory burst neurons leading to reverberation in their reciprocally innervating circuit. ..
