Abstract

Saccades are rapid, ballistic, yoked movements of the eyes which bring the gaze to a new location in visual space. These movements may be performed voluntarily (tested clinically by asking the patient to ‘Look to your left, keeping your head still’, etc.) or reflexively, i.e. in response to an object of potential interest within the visual field (tested clinically by asking the patient to shift gaze from one of examiner’s hands to another).
