Two primary issues are being studied in relation to the control of coordinated eye and head movements. The first one is the possible interaction of the vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) during the saccadic component of a gaze shift and the second one is the possible coordination of eye and head trajectors through shared access to a common premotor drive. This chapter presents an alternate view of central eye-head coordination, using global gaze error as a precursor of motoneural drives. The model of eye-head coupling is also conceptually justified in this chapter. Some simulation examples are presented, including the gaze shifts within and beyond the oculomotor range and coupling of eye and head trajectories.

Keywords:   head-free gaze control, vestibulo-ocular reflex, oculomotor range, interaction, trajectories, premotor drive
