1. Head and gaze movements are usually highly co-ordinated. Here we demonstrate that under certain circumstances they can be controlled independently and we investigate the role of anticipatory activity in this process. 2. In experiment 1, subjects tracked, with head and eyes, a sinusoidally moving target. Overall, head and gaze trajectories were tightly coupled. From moment to moment, however, the trajectories could be very different and head movements were significantly more variable than… CONTINUE READING
