Answer

Eye movement recordings can be done to measure the amplitude and frequency of nystagmus, but they are mainly used for research purposes. Pendular waveforms are often punctuated by brief foveation periods on such recordings. Jerk waveforms have highly characteristic increasing velocity slow phases. [3]
