Eye-head coordination for the steering of locomotion in humans: an anticipatory synergy.


We investigated head and gaze orientation in six healthy volunteers walking along 90 degrees corner trajectories, both at light and with eyes closed. We found that head and eyes systematically deviated toward the future direction of the curved trajectory. Anticipation lead was about 1 s. Strikingly, the same behaviour was observed in darkness. In backward… (More)
