Prior studies have led to the gaze feedback hypothesis, which states that quick orienting movements of the visual axis (gaze shifts) are controlled by a feedback system. We have previously provided evidence for this hypothesis by extending the original study of Mays and Sparks (1980) to the cat with unrestrained head (Pélisson et al. 1989). We showed that cats compensated for a stimulation-induced perturbation of initial gaze position by generating, in the dark, an accurate gaze shift towards… CONTINUE READING
