Reflex eye movements occur during linear head movements to maintain ocular fixation on visual targets. Some theoretical considerations and experimental findings are presented in this chapter to support a compensatory role for the LVOR. The discussion is limited to primates since their visual-vestibular interactions and target fixation are improved by binocular foveate vision and depth perception. It is concluded that three LVORS — the horizontal response to IA motion, the vertical response to DV motion, and both the horizontal and vertical responses to 5 Hz NO motion — show characteristics consistent with the kinematics of ideal compensatory eye movements that help maintain stable “target” fixation.
