Pursuit eye movements are smooth rotations of the eye aimed at tracking moving objects. During pursuit, the visual system "compensates" for the eye movements, and transforms image movements captured by the eye from retinal to extra-retinal coordinates, for world-centered perception and action. When this function is impaired such as in schizophrenia, subjects misattribute retinal movements generated by their own eye movements to external sources. Surprisingly, even in healthy subjects pursuit… CONTINUE READING
