Previous work on eye movements (Lord & Wright, 1950; Ratliff & Riggs, 1950; Barlow, 1952; Ditchburn & Ginsborg, 1953; Riggs, 1958) has shown that when a subject fixates as steadily as possible upon a well-defined target, certain involuntary eye-rotations persist. The natural involuntary movements of the eye include (i) a high frequency tremor of amplitude less than 0 5 minute of arc (min . arc) and frequencies up to 150 c/s, (ii) intermittent rapid flicks of up to 50 min. arc occurring at… Expand
