This chapter focuses on the discussion of the characteristics of neck muscle command signals and the descriptions of the aspects of head movement trajectories, eye saccades, and the coordination in visually triggered oblique gaze shifts by trained cats. The methods in the eye and head movement recording and the training procedure and experimental paradigm are presented. The results of the activity are explained in detail in this chapter, including (1) the timing of the neck muscle discharge as a function of the orientation of the head movement and (2) the temporal aspects of eye-head component coordination.

Keywords:   trajectories, eye saccades, eye-head coordination, oblique gaze, neck muscle, signals, command signals
