The initiation of smooth pursuit eye movements (PEM) by visual and non-visual signals was analysed in humans and monkeys. While PEM latency ranged around 150 ms when a purely visual target was provided, it often dropped to about 0 ms, or even became negative, when target movement was coupled to the subject's arm; this suggests that signals about the intention to move the arm can be evaluated for PEM control. Eye movements always started in the visually correct direction, independent of the sign… CONTINUE READING
