The mechanics of human saccadic eye movement
  • D. Robinson
  • Biology
    The Journal of physiology
  • 1 November 1964
TLDR
The evidence presented here will demonstrate that the system of eyeball and orbital tissues is heavily overdamped, has no resonant frequency and is little affected by the mass of the eyeball.
The use of control systems analysis in the neurophysiology of eye movements.

  • Computer Science
    Annual review of neuroscience
  • 1981
TLDR
The authors' knowledge of signals and connections in the oculomotor system is still at a stage where much more information is needed, but, thanks to recent advances in tracing nerve cell processes and recording from cells in alert animals, coupled with certain simplifying features of the eye movement, the question is perceived quite differently by people working at the many levels of the nervous system.
A model of the smooth pursuit eye movement system
TLDR
Human, horizontal, smooth-pursuit eye movements were recorded by the search coil method in response to Rashbass step-ramp stimuli and the offset of pursuit did not show the ringing seen in the onset, suggesting that fixation is not pursuit at zero velocity and that the pursuit system is turned on when needed and off during fixation.
Cerebellar-dependent adaptive control of primate saccadic system.
TLDR
The cerebellum's principal contribution to saccadic eye movements is the adjustment of the gains of the pulse- and step-generating mechanisms, which supports the hypothesis that repair of dysmetria is a general function of the cerebellums.
A method for measuring horizontal and vertical eye movement chronically in the monkey.
TLDR
Eye movements are measured chronically in the monkey by surgically implanting a coil of fine wire upon the eyeball beneath the bulbar conjunctiva and recti insertions, making it possible to record eye movements conveniently and accurately in the experimental animal in longor short-term experiments on oculomotor function.
Loss of the neural integrator of the oculomotor system from brain stem lesions in monkey.
TLDR
The eye movement disorders were due to a reversible, not a permanent, lesion, and the vestibuloocular reflex (VOR) was drastically changed by the lesions.
Eye movements evoked by stimulation of frontal eye fields.
Models of the saccadic eye movement control system

  • 31 December 1973
TLDR
A sequence of four models is proposed for the saccadic eye movement control system, which incorporates a continuum of parallel processing to represent the retinotopic spatial organization of the visual system and the tecto-bulbar motor commands.
