The Head-Neck Sensory Motor System

James H. Fuller

Oxford University Press

In this chapter, a variety of saccadic eye-head movements evoked by visual and auditory stimuli are reviewed. Variation in head movement strategies resulting from methodology as well as the subject's own biases are considered alongside factors already known to affect eye-head movements. Search strategies are compared in different tasks. First, in the relatively simple situation in which the head is immobilized; second, in the more complicated situation when the head is free to move. The variables of movement amplitude and sensory modality are compared at the same time. In the studies of Guitton and Volle as well as Bizzi et al., saccadic latency was majorly affected by the predictability of the fixation-saccade interval and the saccade amplitude and direction.

Keywords:   eye-head movements, movement strategies, movement amplitude, sensory modality, saccadic latency, fixation-saccade interval, saccade amplitude
