Torsional movements of the human eye. I. Torsional movements on inclining the head towards the shoulder

Torsional movements of the human eye. I. Torsional movements on inclining the head towards the shoulder

Biofizika 21(3): 570-577

The characteristics of the torsional eye movements during head tilting were investigated. Different conditions were used in the experiments. The subjects were in sitting and lying positions in the light and in the dark. A new method of recording with the suction device of Yarbus and the simple optical system allowed to have records without some redundant components of movement. This made record processing less complex and more accurate. The torsional drift in the slow phase of the eye movement was found present under any conditions. When being recorded simultaneously both eyes in man were in identical and synchronous movement.
