1). Smooth pursuit system Smooth pursuits are slow eye movements under a control system capable of continuous modification of motor output in response to visual input (Chen et al. 2002). For slow velocities, the eye movement tracks the target accurately with velocity matching. For faster velocities, the eye may not always match the target velocity necessitating a catch-up saccade. The major stimulus for the generation of smooth pursuit movement is a fixated target that moves across the foveal and perifoveal retina.
