When the head is free to move, almost all saccades larger than 4 deg in amplitude are accompanied by head rotation. This head movement starts at a variable delay after the beginning of the eye movement. Most frequently, the latency is 30 msec.3. After finishing its saccade, the eye rotates retrogressively in… CONTINUE READING
